This article deals with prose written by Vera Linhartova and published between 1964 and 1968. The focus of the article is on the noetic and philosophical dimension of words as one of the main features of Linhartova's poetics - Linhartova is trying to reflect immediate subjective ideas in her texts. The word 'idea' (predstava) in Linhartova's texts refers to the intentions of the characters - i.e. what they intend to communicate in the particular moment. The trio of the speaking subject, words and ideas forms the basis for the noetic and philosophical reflections in Linhartova's texts, with the form of the texts as the practical counterpart to these reflective passages.
