Dramatic Narrative: Racine's Récits

Couverture
P. Lang, 1986 - 229 pages
What is the purpose of narrative in drama? Can narrative have a truly dramatic function, distinct from narrative in fiction? Dramatic Narrative: Racine's Récits explores these and related issues, taking as its starting point a definition of minimal narrative. This raises the general problem of the status of narrative in dramatic discourse. Racine's récits, tragic and comic alike, provide a rich corpus for the analysis of the various functions of narrative in drama, its structure, context, and mode of communication.
