    Barthes 5 narrative codes Barthes 5 narrative codes Presentation Transcript

    • Barthes 5narrative codes
    • • Barthes suggested that there will be one or more of the 5 codes that descibe the meaning of a text.• Barthes said that texts may be ‘open’ (unravelled in a lot of different ways) or ‘closed’ (there is only one obvious thread to pull on).
    • The 5 codes • Hermeneutic / Enigma code • Proairetic/Action code • Semantic code • Symbolic code • Referential code
    • Hermeneutic/Enigma code• This code refers to mystery within a text. Clues are dropped, but no clear answers are given.• Enigmas within the narrative make the audience want to know more.• Unanswered enigmas tend to frustrate the audience.
    • Proairetic/Action code• This code contains sequential elements of action in the text.• Proairetic elements add suspense to the text.
    • Semantic code• This code refers to parts within the text that suggests or referes to additional meanings.• Elements of the semantic code are called Semes.• The seme has a connotative function in the text. It has an extra layer of meaning in addition to its literal meaning
    • Symbolic code• This code is about symbolism within the text.• It exercises opposites to show contrast and create greater meaning, creating tension, drama and character development.
    • Referential code• This code refers to anything in the text which refers to an external body of knowlegde such as scientific, historical and cultural knowledge.
