Narrative Interactions: Sagadi
I spent some time debating the importance of contextualism in relation to unnatural narratives with my good friend, Jan Alber. For me, the reader's frames of reference and their cultural situation precede their interpretation to define a scenario as 'unnatural' or not, at least when this moves beyond concrete examples of logical impossibility. And the cultural differences in interpretation strike me as something that would be interesting to explore too. But I'm not convinced that literary narratologists would see things the same way. Does that matter? What do you think?
