Abstract:

This book analyses and describes Speech and Thought Presentation (S&TP) in
French from a broad theoretical perspective, building bridges between
linguistic, stylistic and narratological frameworks that have until now
been developed separately. It combines the French théorie de l'énonciation
and different Anglo-Saxon approaches of reported discourse into a
harmonious whole, in order to create a new and exciting paradigm for our
conception of S&TP strategies. Basing its findings on actual corpora and
going beyond the canonical categories of reported discourse, it shows that
the study of S&TP strategies is essential to our understanding of phenomena
as diverse as the evolution and categorization of literary genres, the
production and staging of 'orality' in literature, the various
conceptualizations of the notion of 'Truth' in fiction and non-fiction, the
expression of points of view in narrative, the structuring of rhetorical
strategies and the construction of the 'Self' versus the representation of
the 'Other' in discourse.
