Narrative Comprehension and Film

Edward Branigan

1stPublisher: RoutledgeFormat: Paperback

Narrative is one of the ways we organise and understand the world. It is found everywhere: not only in films and books, but also in everyday conversations and in the nonfictional discourses of journalists, historians, educators, psychologists, attorneys and many others. Edward Branigan presents a telling exploration of the basic concepts of narrative theory and its relation to film - and literary - analysis, bringing together theories from linguistics and cognitive science, and applying them to the screen. Individual analyses of classical narratives form the basis of a complex study of every aspect ot filmic fiction exploring, for example, subjectivity in Lady in the Lake, multiplicity in Letter from an Unknown Woman, post-modernism and documentary in Sans Soleil. Through his exploration of film, Branigan expresses how narratology should be viewed as a distinctive strategy for recognising, isolating and articulating the fundamental role which narrative plays in our response to the world as a whole.
