“The reductionist stage focused on specific devices, starting from the basic assumption that art liberates perception from automatization. Poetic language was defined as the deformation of everyday practical language, which is characterized by economy—that is, a maximum of automatization and a minimum of effort in perception. Thus, from a productive perspective, art was characterized by a process of “making strange” (ostranenie) in order to render perception more difficult; from a receptive perspective, artistic perception was understood as “seeing anew” (videnie) as opposed to “re‐cognizing” (uznavanie). Consequently, art is characterized by deautomatization or defamiliarization, a process that is achieved by way of specific literary devices. The reception process itself becomes an end in itself: the process of making strange causes the recipient to detect or to “lay bare” the devices (obnaženie priëma), and it thus directs the recipient’s attention toward the literary artifact’s “differential qualities” or its “markedness.””
