DIE LASERFUNKSIE VAN TAAL: OPENBARING OF VERHULLING? ’N TEORETIESE ORIËNTERING
AbstractThe conflict of interpretations is a dilemma as well as a challenge to the researcher. The study of poems is not normally considered as directive in such investigations. For the Russian-American philologist Roman Jakobson however, poetry is the working laboratory for the fundamental object language, because it is unique among the varied and often intermarried types and genres of linguistic discourse. Any poetic construction supposes a purposeful choice of language. The aim of this article is to focus attention on insights, which may play a role in readings of such a complicated and problematic text as the Biblical canon. The conclusions of the article are based on a poetical perception of this kind of linguistic activity as the laser function of language and the result of its operation in creating an artistic text.
