Abstract

From the assumption that literary texts do not intend to be immediately understandable, by actually being interested in building up a rather wide meaning frame for the interpretation of texts, the article presents a paradigmatic comparative study between a non-literary and a literary text. The aim of this article is to demonstrate that literary texts, and especially lyrical texts, tend to show a more fragmentary degree of explicitness than non-literary texts. The textual analyses are based on the linguistic concept of 'isotopic chain', inspired by Greimas, which is here interpreted as referring to the textual modality of permitting the reconstruction of meaning by means of the reader: explicit means of recurrence are seen as the 'rings' of the chain, implicitness is regarded as the 'missing rings' of the isotopic chain.
