Abstract:

This paper proposes an interpretation of narrative as a complex web of interrelated elements, of which “field”, “time” and “memory” are essential. Our framework revolves around the exploration of two embedded types of discourse – the scientific and the artistic – that unfold the web of temporal relations within the narrative structure, by means of a variety of figurative connections. Besides the investigation of the scientific language that uses a denotatively accessible form, we shall insist upon the literary language that unfolds the connotative aspects of language.

Keywords:

time, field, memory, narrative web, narrative embedding, meaning networks, discourse, conceptual metaphors.
