Interpretation is powerfully influenced by the reader's ideological orientation. This is illustrated by means of a re-interpretation of DJ. Opperman's poem "Na ’n besoek aan die dieretuin", in which the typological intertext of the ‘oorredingslied' (song of persuasion), activated by the motto of the poem, is taken into account. The alternative reading of the poem generated in this way is validated by integrating key textual elements at present not taken into account by leading critics, notably Grove.
