The aim of this paper is to offer a representation on how cognitive poetics can be used to analyse Lucian Blaga’s poetry. With the help of digital instruments designed for corpus linguistics, concordances of the term ‘fire’ are identified and classified, giving this cognitive process a material form, together with a hermeneutical perspective. Furthermore, an example of how the similarity in minds’ activity of a group, community, or culture regarding metaphors are englobed in a pattern, can also be remarked in this paper.
