DIE LASERFUNKSIE VAN TAAL: OPENBARING OF VERHULLING? ’N TEORETIESE ORIËNTERING

Rensia Robinson

Abstract


The 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.
