The article aims at exploring the consequences of the globalization development on literary texts including documentary ones, the emergence of new author’s documentary concepts up to pseudo- and quasi-documentary, the transformation of the understanding of literary creativity as a phenomenon, and the comprehension of the literary process through the prism of cultural production and consumption of literary product.

Keywords: globalization, literary creation, documentary, literary production, non-fiction, quasi-documentary literature.
