about this item
The book offers a novel approach to the question of how to model narrativity against the background of perspectivization. By bringing together contributions from cognitive and neurolinguistics, literary studies, and picture theory, the volume uncovers basic mechanisms of perspectivization that are common to the different levels of linguistic structure, literary novels, and narrative pictures. As such, it is also a book on narrative perspectivization since its contributions examine in detail the perspectival principles in medieval, romantic and postmodern literature, in the micro-linguistic structure of language, narrative pictures, literary novels, dramatic texts, and everyday stories. In doing so, it will contribute both to the theoretical debate on the core definition of narrativity as well as offer new empirical investigations on perspectival principles in specific historical, medial, and genre constellations. This volume should be of interest to scholars and students of cognitive linguistics, narrative research and (transmedial) narratology, cognitive poetics, and stylistics.
