The Nature of Fictional Discourse: A Case Study.
Black, Elizabeth
Applied Linguistics, v10 n3 p281-93 Sep 1989
Muriel Spark's "Miss Pinkerton's Apocalypse" deploys major elements of narrative organization to demonstrate, in a very brief text, the nature of literary discourse. Analysis of the narrator's voice, the relationship between the story and the text, and the dialogue show how each explores the narrative's essentially fictive nature. (Author/CB)
