Applications of Narratology

THROUGHOUT THIS GUIDE TO THEORY, I have tried, when possible, to offer a certain consistency to the applications by analyzing the same material from different theoretical perspectives. As in each of the sections in this Guide to Theory, I offer one application through a reading of the Dürer image associated with Narratology. As a second application, I closely examine a simple sentence, "The road is clear," to illustrate how the precepts of narratology and structuralism can help us to unpack the complexity of language even at the micro-level. The application to Wuthering Heights functions as an introduction to Roland Barthes and his exposition of the five codes of narrative in S/Z. For the applications, click on the images to the left.
