Summary/Abstract: Metaphor is the result of an imaged language use by which at a semantic level one compares two terms that belong to different domains. In its structure, irrespetive of the metaphorized item belonging to literary discourse or not, we talk about metaphor in praesentia or in absentia, lively or dead, simple or continued… As such, the domain of realization of the metaphor is surely the literary. If it is also true that the stylistic analysis, in accordance with the stylistic approach proposed by Georges Molinié, aims to describe what determines the literary nature of the discourse, then we are entitled to infer that metaphor, especially in absentia, ceases to be a simple trope because generated by an analogical transfer of denomination, as well as what can render its literary character to the discourse of Albert Debony, through its strong occurrence.
