Analysis Literary

By | July 9, 2013

Proposal for literary analysis: the narrative process and the type of finish. 1. The narrative process narrative process, i.e., the order of the plot or narrative, can be: from the beginning (ab ovo or ab initio): If the work is presented in a logical order, from the beginning, from the origin of the events. It tells linearly. This linear or chronological narrative was the most traditional way in the narrative in the periods prior to contemporary literature. From the media (in media res): If the work starts from what chronologically would be the medium or the knot of the narration. It means in the midst of the matter. Indicates that the events are presented to us or recount when half of the facts has already happened.

From the end (in extreme res): If begin narrating the outcome. The events are counted from the end and backwards. We must say the plot is presented in what order and check it, supporting the actions. 2. The type of finish according to the outcome, the work may have an open or closed end. The work presents open ending if left loose with respect to the protagonists and the central action; ends i.e., if the reader has the freedom to imagine or suggest the end or outcome in their own way, because the author does not presents it. The author does not define the end to allow the reader to suggest it. Takes the reader on the edge of the evidence and then will you loose, leaving it in abeyance.

Examples: The Colonel doesn’t who type you, the attic, the drowned, red beret. The end is closed if there are loose ends, since the author presents the outcome or solution of the actions and the main characters. The work has a closed end when it is finished in itself, when the denouement solves the problem of the central plot, when nothing suggests continuation or ambiguity of interpretation. It occurs when item is rounded and completes the action; When in its outcome targets of the basic characters are resolved and decides the fate of the facts. There are threads narrative without resolving that allow or suggest a continuation; i.e., the work closes permanently. For example, in La Gitanilla, La Ilustre MOP, Yerma, Odyssey, La Voragine, Dona Barbara. We must note if the work presented open or closed end and explain why; that is, support it with facts of the plot. Original author and source of the article.
