The present paper suggests an application of ontologies in the analysis of a literary phenomenon. Starting from the needs of humanistic research and from the availibility on the Web of Language Resources, the adoption of such methodology, whose reference tool is an ontology, has led to a deeper analysis of the "Dualism Truth vs. Propaganda" in Karl Kraus's writings and of the novel "Cloud, castle and lake" of Vladimir Nabokov.
