The title of this article in Danish should be translated »The Narrative and the Lyrical«
The article intends to show that texts conventionally called lyrical texts are, in fact, imbued with narrative elements. Initially Holmgaard critically examines a number of commonly used genre definitions, and eventually two formally precise definitions of the lyrical respectively the narrative are suggested.
In the following part of the article he exemplifies how we can observe a range of narrative elements everywhere in Danish poetry from 18th century Baroque until the free verse of Modernism in 20th century literature. The final aim of these demonstrations is to make an end to the common divide between readings of lyrical texts that only indirectly address narrative elements of these texts and a narratology that only focuses on prose literature.
