Point of view, perspective, and focalization : modeling mediation in narrative( )

13 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stories do not actually exist in the (fictional or factual) world but are constituted, structured and endowed with meaning through the process of mediation, i.e. they are represented and transmitted through systems of verbal, visual or audio-visual signs. The terms usually proposed to describe aspects of mediation, especially perspective, point of view, and focalization, have yet to bring clarity to this field, which is of central importance, not only for narratology but also for literary and media studies. One crucial problem about mediation concerns the dimensions of its modeling effect, particularly the precise status and constellation of the mediating agents, i.e. author, narrator or presenter and characters. The question is how are the structure and the meaning of the story conditioned by these different positions in relation to the mediated happenings perceived from outside and/or inside the storyworld? In this volume, fourteen articles by international scholars from seven different countries address these problems anew from various angles, reviewing the sub-categorization of mediation and re-specifying its dimensions both in literary texts and other media such as drama and theater, film, and computer games

Emerging vectors of narratology by Wolf Schmid( )

15 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 1,041 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Is narratology consolidating or is it diversifying? Under the heading "Contexts," some contributions to this volume seek to reframe and refine such topics as the implied author, narrative causation or transmedial narrative as well as the cultural and historical dimensions of narrative. Others, under "Openings," expand on these and other questions by addressing the narrative turn, cognitive issues, narrative complexity and metatheoretical matters."--Publisher's description

14 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a standard work for modern narrative theory. It provides a terminological and theoretical system of reference for future research.

Mentale Ereignisse Bewusstseinsveränderungen in europäischen Erzählwerken vom Mittelalter bis zur Moderne by Wolf Schmid( )

12 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in German and English and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mental events in the minds of narrated individuals are an essential feature of narrated works. This study develops a typology of techniques for depicting the consciousness of narrated figures, and also seeks to delineate criteria and conditions for mental events. It then investigates how changes in consciousness are depicted in traditional narrative works from various cultures and epochs"

Narrative Motivierung von der romanischen Renaissance bis zur russischen Postmoderne by Wolf Schmid( )

6 editions published in 2020 in German and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Problem der Motivierung in Erzählwerken bedarf weiterer Klärung. Das vorliegende Buch unterscheidet zunächst zwischen der Motivation (der Begründung für die Aktionen der Figuren) und der Motivierung (dem Bestreben des Autors, seinem Werk Schlüssigkeit, Plausibilität und Wirkung zu geben). Angesichts der zahlreichen, in der Systematik oft problematischen Typologien der Motivierung zeichnet sich die einfache Unterscheidung von kausaler und künstlerischer Motivierung als hinreichend für eine funktionale Werkbeschreibung ab. Für die kausale Motivierung wird eine Reihe historisch relevanter Sonderformen ("Motivierung von hinten", "finale Motivierung", Motivierung durch Determination) beschrieben. In einem theoriegeschichtlichen Durchgang werden Konzepte der Motivierung von Aristoteles über den neoaristotelischen russischen Formalismus (Viktor Šklovskij), die fundamentale Kritik Michail Bachtins bis zum frühstrukturalistischen evolutionsbezogenen Ansatz Jurij Tynjanovs betrachtet. Der werkanalytische Parcours setzt bei Boccaccio und Cervantes ein und führt über epochenspezifische Formen romantischer, realistischer und modernistischer Prägung unterschiedlicher Kulturen zur postmodernen Motivierung bei dem russischen Autor Andrej Bitov
