At Play on the Borders of the Diegetic: Story Boundaries and Narrative Interpretation.
Mackey, Margaret
Journal of Literacy Research, v35 n1 p591-632 Spr 2003
Explains that as young readers respond to narrative texts in a variety of media, they repeatedly step in and out of the fictional universe of their different stories. Outlines contemporary texts that foster various forms of such border crossing, in and out of diegesis, the framework of events as narrated in the text. Explores how an awareness of this aspect of contemporary texts may enhance understanding of interpretive processes. (PM)
