This statement justifies the applying of the complicated technique of narratology to the systematic research of lyric poems. After a concise presentation of this transgeneric method of poetry, the research units out to illustrate its sensible fruitfulness in specific analyses of a giant variety of English (and a few American) poems from the early smooth interval to the current. The narratological method proves quite suited for specialize in the hitherto commonly ignored measurement of sequentiality, the dynamic development of the poetic utterance and its eventful turns, which mostly represent the raison d'être of the poem. To facilitate comparisons, the examples selected proportion one unique thematic advanced, the anxious event of critical loss: the loss of life of a loved individual, the imminence of one’s personal loss of life, the loss of life of a respected fellow-poet and the lack of a primary stabilizing order. The functionality of the poems should be defined as dealing with the nerve-racking adventure within the poetic medium and using a variety of coping options. The poems hence own a healing impetus.
