Abstract:
			
John Benjamins Publishing would like to announce the publication of
this new title in the field of Nonverbal
Communication: Nonverbal Communication across
Disciplines, Volume 3: Narrative literature, theater, cinema,
translation by Fernando Poyatos, University of New
Brunswick

This volume, based on the first two, identifies the verbal and
nonverbal personal and environmental components of narrative and
dramaturgic texts and the cinema --recreated in the first through the
"reading act" according to gaze mechanism and punctuation-- and traces
the coding-decoding processes of the characters semiotic-communicative
itinerary between writer-creator and reader-recreator. In our total
experience of a play or film we depend on the sensory and intellectual
relationships between performers, audience and the environment of
both, in a temporal dimension starting on the way to the theater and
ending as one comes out. Two chapters discuss the speaking face and
body of the characters and the explicit and implicit (at times
"unstageable") paralanguage, kinesics and quasiparalinguistic and
extrasomatic and environmental sounds in the novel, the theater and
the cinema, and the functions of personal and environmental
silences. Another shows the functions, limitations and problems of
punctuation systems in the creative-recreative processes and how a few
new symbols and modifications would avoid some ambiguities. The
stylistic, communicative and technical functions of nonverbal
repertoires in the literary text are then identified as enriching
critical analysis and offering new perspectives in
translation. Finally, "literary anthropology" (developed by the author
in the 1970s) is is presented as an interdisciplinary area based on
synchronic and diachronic analyses of the literatures of the different
cultures as a source of anthropological and ethnological data. Nearly
1200 quotes from 170 authors and 291 works are added to those in the
first two volumes.
