This paper analyses Gavella’s essay called Poetic structure of Mažuranić’s Smail-aga (1961) which, based on the example of canonical literary text, summarizes the author’s principal and theoretical views about the relationship between literature and dramatic performance. Following his insight that dramatization of a literary text, in the first place, requires a reading-interpretative effort kept within the frames of textual analysis of linguistic material, the second part of this paper represents the reading of controversial textual points in Mažuranić’s poem in the light of Gavella’s interpretative guidelines. At the same time, metatextual signals are shown to be essential for understanding Smail-aga, the analysis of the correlation between narrator and author, the status of the storyteller, and the associated shift in understanding of poetic language from constative to performative.
