Narrative Comprehension and Film (Sightlines) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

viewed as a distinctive strategy for recognizing, isolating, and articulating the fundamental role which narrative plays in our response to the world as a whole.

Synopsis:

Branigan presents a telling exploration of the basic concepts of narrative theory and its relation to film - and literary - analysis. He brings together theories from both linguistics and cognitive science, and applies them to the screen.

Synopsis:

Narrative is one of the ways we organise and understnad the world. It is found everywhere: not only in films and books, but also in everday conversations and in the nonfictional discourses of journalists, historians, educators, psychologists, attorneys and many others.

Edward Branigan presents a telling exploration of the basic concepts of narrative theory and its relation to film - and literary - analysis, bringing together theories from linguistics and cognitive science, and applying them to the screen. Individual analyses of classical narratives form the basis of a complex study of every aspect of filmic fiction exploring, for example, subjectivity in Lady in the Lake, multiplicity in Letter from and Unknown Woman, post-modernism and documentary in Sans Soleil.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 218-306) and index.
