W jaki sposób metafory wyrażają literaturoznawczy światopogląd? Analiza wybranych tekstów teoretyczno i krytycznoliterackich
How do metaphors express a literary studies worldview? An analysis of selected examples of theoretical and critical texts
Languages of publication
In the article, Katarzyna Lisowska analyzes selected literary studies metaphors (Edward Balcerzan’s term) in order to discuss the way in which they represent the academic worldview of the author. The paper focuses on the phrases from the semantic field of corporeality and/or eroticism and their presence in four influential methodologies: structuralism, post-structuralism (as well as the perspectives related to it: deconstruction and deconstructionism), feminist criticism and gender studies discourse. The analyses reveal a significant role of metaphors in expressing and formulating the assumptions of a given methodology, as well as some paradoxes which result from the application of the presented phrases.
