Sample text

The semiotic impulse was perceived primarily as a radical contrast to traditional literary study: 'Without a semiotic orientation the theoretician of art will always be inclined to regard the work of art as a purely formal construction, or as a direct image of the author's psychic or even physiological dispositions or of the particular reality expressed by the work, or, perhaps, as a reflection of the ideological, economic, social and cultural situation of a certain milieu' (Mukafovsky, 'L'Art', Studie z estetiky, p.

25). This shift from Mukafovsky's focus on the 'sign' (language, 'code') to the focus on the 'message' (text) is indicative of the post-war conception of literature as text rather than as language. The popularity of the Biihlerian system of language functions probably explains why an alternative version of Prague School functional linguistics has gone almost unnoticed. Its development was promoted by the interest of Prague scholars in the theory of standard (literary) language, stimulated by the polemic of 1932 (see above, History).

In their repeated attempts to define the specificity of literary communication, the Prague scholars explored three avenues: the linguistic, the sociological and the phenomenological. While the similarities and differences in these approaches remained obscure at the time, we are now able to see that they represent the intellectual context in which the Prague School semiotics was born. Literary structure In harmony with its structuralist epistemology (see above, p. 37), Prague School poetics treated literary works as specific, poetic (aesthetic) structures.
