»Centres and Borders: On Defining Narrativity and Narratology«

Lars-Åke Skalin

Artiklen er på 58 sider og findes
i Borderliners.

Skalin discusses the question of how to define the object of narrative theory and, in connection with this, how to view the nature of the theory itself. In the matter of definition he suggests that two main routes have been ventured. One is the ‘classical’, or ‘objectivist’, theory of categorisation, which attempts to find the necessary and sufficient features that

would make something a narrative, i.e. »what all and only narratives have in common« (Gerald Prince). The other is the ‘prototype’ and ‘fuzzy set’ theory. Its way of answering what ‘narrative’ means is to point to some indisputable examples, allowing also for more uncertain ones.
