Narrative Theory

  1. 1. NARRATIVE THEORY Research and Similar Products
  2. 2. WHAT IS NARRATIVE? • Narrative is the way a story or tale is told so that the elements are structured and organised in such a way that it makes sense to the audience.
  3. 3. NARRATIVE VERSUS STORY • "Story is the irreducible substance of a story (A meets B, something happens, order returns), while narrative is the way the story is related (Once upon a time there was a princess...)" • (Key Concepts in Communication - Fiske et al (1983))
  4. 4. NARRATIVE CONVENTIONS • When unpacking a narrative in order to find its meaning, there are a series of codes and conventions that need to be considered. When we look at a narrative we examine the conventions of • Genre • Character • Form • Time • and use knowledge of these conventions to help us interpret the text. In particular, Time is something that we understand as a convention - narratives do not take place in real time but may telescope out (the slow motion shot which replays a winning goal) or in (an 80 year life can be condensed into a two hour biopic). Therefore we consider "the time of the thing told and the time of the telling." (Christian Metz Notes Towards A Phenomenology of Narrative). • It is only because we are used to reading narratives from a very early age, and are able to compare texts with others that we understand these conventions. A narrative in its most basic sense is a series of events, but in order to construct meaning from the narrative those events must be linked somehow.
  5. 5. NARRATIVE STRUCTURE • Fabula refers to the chronological sequence of events in a narrative • Schuzet is the re-presentation of those events (through narration, metaphor, camera angles, the re-ordering of the temporal sequence, and so on). • The distinction is equivalent to that between story and discourse, and was used by the Russian Formalists, an influential group of structuralists.
