The article is devoted to the subjective perception of time, or psychological time, as a text category and a literary image. It focuses on the visual images that are characteristic of different types of literary time--accelerated, decelerated and frozen (vanished). The research is based on the assumption that the category of subjective perception of time expresses different concepts and is formed through different text categories, including the category of visual evaluation. The main objective of the research is to determine the role played by the linguistic means expressing the category of visual evaluation in modelling subjective perception of time in a literary text. To attain the posed objective we have accomplished a number of tasks by means of the following linguistic methods: the method of contextual, component and stylistic analysis and the method of classification. The authors conclude that the linguistic means of expression of visual evaluation, i.e. words denoting colour and light, play an important role in modelling psychological time in a literary text, since they allow a reader to "see" the flow of time in a character's mind.
