Literature, as a reflection of the writer's private and stereotyped representations about different cultures, influences readers' worldview. Authors with bimental thinking model in their oeuvre of situations based on a multicultural behaviour or perception. The objective of this paper is to analyse the personality of bimental writers and features of their poetics, to determine conditions under which the works of an author generate multicultural competence among readers and to build a technique of studying literature within multicultural education. The social and political situation in the country of residence, as well as biographical facts, directly affects an author's bimental thinking. The author is able to identify a lyrical character with members of other ethnic groups, as he or she is familiar with situations involving customs, traditions and other languages. The readers choose the literature based on these criteria and which can in turn influence their perception of other cultures contributing to multicultural education.
