The article deals with the left :: right dichotomy in formal organization of poetic texts. The cross-paradigmatic data have been reviewed to delineate the complex ground of the investigated object. It has been stated that the left :: right dichotomy in poetic texts hinges on neurophysiologic and cognitive mechanisms, and finds its manifestation in semiotic constructs. The latter are referred to in the current research as image-bearing spaces which embrace linguistic units marking (explicitly or implicitly) particular inner states of a lyric persona. The image bearing spaces containing antinomic linguistic units are regarded as contrasted (in temporary, spatial as well as dynamic aspects). It has been revealed that the dichotomy correlates with the main emotive units of a verse namely anxiety and peacefulness. The left-hand space of a poem correlates with the present time eventivity whereas the right-hand space contains the imagery that refers to desired or dreamt-of states of a lyric persona. It has been also proved that the left-right change of emotivity in a poetic text marked by stylistic means basically renders the lyric persona’s move from peacefulness to anxiety.
