Narrative Mediation, Narrative Levels and the Function of Narration in "Midsummer" (David Greig)
GRIN Verlag, 2011 - 36 pages
Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 1,0, Bergische Universität Wuppertal, Veranstaltung: Contemporary British Darma, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In his article "Voice and Narration in Postmodern Drama" Brian Richardson complains of the lack of "critical literature on narration in drama," as it is only recently that narratologists have even started to even acknowledge the existence of "narratorial mediation" (Richardson, Voice and Narration 682). Considering Midsummer (a play with songs) by David Greig and Gordon McIntyre, this recent development in narratology is indispensable for an appropriate analysis.
