Summary/Abstract: Literature should be read as self-sufficient for itself, because the knowledge it has inside, the self-knowledge of man is enough to be aesthetically necessary for man, without ideological additions. In the text, the theory reveals the tendency that in every literary text, in every literary form, the uniqueness should be seen, and how that uniqueness will be positioned within the value system of literature. And when it sets the themes (and environmental themes - ecologism) through a certain process of semiosis, to be repeated and repeated, as concentrates, through the various literary forms - poetry, short story, novel, etc., and when the basic characteristics of literature are sublimated, as a construction and as a meaning, i.e. like poetics, then we will be able to talk about a certain variant of historical poetics, i.e. the history of literature, as a science of critical objective analysis, of transformations and eternities, of the strong effect of works from tradition and their models, rather then of the temporal ideological and political processes.
