The poetic picture of the world of Sophia de Mello: Cognitive strategy and organizing principles

The article examines the cognitive strategy chosen by the Portuguese poet Sophia de Mello (1919–2004). The poems are analyzed according to the criteria of a harmonious/disharmonious perception of the world, the predominance of objective/subjective point of view, as well as from the point of view of performing an orienting function or creating the effect of disorientation.
