Example text

Sometimes referred to as ‘actants’, the focus is often on what they do rather than who they are, in terms of personality or psychology. However, this view of character has been challenged by theorists who focus on narrative experientiality (Fludernik 1996) and by cognitive narratologists interested in how the minds of fictional characters are constructed and interpreted by readers. Characters may also be narrators, recounting events which they took part in either within the storyworld, as embedded narratives told to other characters or as the main narrative voice responsible for shaping and creating the storyworld, as is often the case with a first person narrator telling of the story of events in which ‘I’ took part.
