How do characters tell stories in plays and for what dramatic purpose? This
volume provides the first systematic analysis of narrative episodes in
drama from an interactional perspective, applying sociolinguistic theories
of narrative and insights from conversation analysis to literary dialogue.
The aim of the book is to show how narration can become drama and how
analysis of the way a character tells a story can be the key to
understanding its role in the unfolding action. The book's interactional
approach, which analyses the way in which the characteristic features of
everyday conversational stories are used by dramatists to create literary
effects, offers an additional tool for dramatic criticism. The book should
be of interest to scholars and students of narrative research, conversation
and discourse analysis, stylistics, dramatic discourse and theatre studies.

Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis

Written In: English (eng )
