Abstract

 Inspired by de Saussure and Hjelmslev and following a structural methodology, YURI LOTMAN puts forward a framework for analyzing the STRUCTURE of the artistic text. Defining art as the system of systems, Lotman points out that any artistic text is a SECONDARY MODELLING system based on the primary model of language. However, artistic texts, compared to natural language, convey more complex information in a smaller amount of space and consequently have a more complex STRUCTURE. This article follows Lotman’s theoretical framework and at the same time analyzes his argumentation. I argue that in artistic texts all different forms have the potentiality of becoming semanticized, i.e. entering into a higher level of signification. Accordingly, in artistic texts more than one system is active at a time; as a result, the tension between these systems leads to the reinforcement and intensification of the text’s significance. In the end, I introduce a new point in the field of poetic semiotics, namely, SEMANTIC ORDERING or the play of signifieds.
