Metafora v anglických pracích Erazima Koháka
Metaphor in Erazim Kohák’s works in English
Languages of publication
Author seeks to analyse crucial role of metaphor in Erazim Kohák’s The Embers and the Stars and other works in English. She rejects conventional interpretation of metaphors as deviant usage and examines Kohák’s use in terms of the theories of Lakoﬀ and Johnson, pointing out that Kohák purposefully uses metaphors to forge patterns of meaning which render experience intelligible. Tus he is able to interpret the experience of the sacred not as description of alternative reality but as encounter with transcendental meaning of ordinary experience.
