This study proposes the application of the methodology of narratology to the analysis of lyric poetry, specifically focusing on the progression and eventful turns in poems. The fruitfulness of this approach is demonstrated by the analyses of English poems from different periods addressing the traumatic experience of loss (death of a beloved person, one’s own imminent death, loss of a stabilizing order) and employing various coping strategies.
