This text, meant as a contribution to the subject of Slovak poetry in the 1960s, focuses on two key collections - Zvony (Bells, 1968) by M. Rufus and Milovanie v husej kozi (Making love with goose pimples, 1965) by M. Valek. It tracks down their motifs such as corporeality, heart, bells in relation to emphatic-historical restoration of man's broken relationship with the others, himself, the world - lyricism then functions as either melancholic (M. Rufus), or farcically sarcastic (M. Valek) incomplete or disillusioned evidence of 'the world condition'. Vitally experienced corporeality changes to remains and traces of a human - in the style of a symbolic relic (M. Rufus), a degraded prop (M. Valek). In order to make contrast within synecdochic interpretations, J. Ondrus's and I. Laucik's texts are also given consideration. The interpretation procedure does not conceal. It is always a paraphrase, synecdoche, ellipsis and amplification of the discussed poem, too. However, what is centrally projected is the world evoked by the text. The present text can be perceived as a partial contribution to the 'thematological poetics' (a term coined by P. Zajac), interconnecting the motifs, tropology and a decently viewed historical context.
