THE INTERPRETATION OF BOŽENA NĚMCOVÁ ́S LETTERS: THE LINGUISTIC PICTURE OF THE WORLD AND IMAGE SCHEMAS
Languages of publication
The article presents the theory of the linguistic picture of the world and the theory of image schemas and discusses their role in the interpretation of “older” literature. The problem is illustrated using letters written by and to B. Němcová, a Czech female writer of the 19th century. The text attempts to demonstrate that the two aspects play different roles in different writer reader configurations – in the context of the original epistolary communication, when the texts are read by the 19th century readers who were not the intended addresses, and when they are interpreted by a contemporary reader.
