LITERARY TERMS

Other useful terms



Anthopomorphism is attributing human forms or qualities to entities which are not human.

Authorial voice : the voices or speakers used by the authors when they seemingly speak for themselves in a book. The use of this term makes it clear in critical discussion that the narration or presentation of a story is not necessarily to be identified with the biographical and historical author.
[ Dans Gulliver's Travels, Jonathan Swift fait une préface sous l'identité d'un éditeur et affirme que tout ce qui suit est véridique. ]


Bildungsroman or apprenticeship novel or coming-of-age story is a story in which the protagonist undergoes growth throughout the entire narrative.

Deus ex Machina ( literary " god out of a machine " ) is an improbable contrivance in a story. The phrase describes an artificial, or improbable, character, device, or event introduced suddenly in a work of fiction or drama to resolve a situation or untangle a plot ( such as an angel suddenly appearing to solve problems ).

Framing narrative, embedded narrative : A framing narrative contains a second narrative, or embedded narrative, in order to provide a context or setting for it. Sometimes this framing narrative will begin and end the narrative as a whole, providing book ends, while other times the framing narrative will simply be present in the beginning of the narrative. The framing narrative " sets the scene " for the embedded narrative, giving us a context in which we can read and interpret the text. [ On parle de récit enchâssant et de récit enchâssé ]

Intertext The text(s) within a text. Roland Barthes said : " Tout texte est un tissu de citations ".
