Description/Language – questions

March 18, 2011

I have a list of questions I put to each text I analyse (though not each question applies to every text). These are the ones that I relate to description/language:

Description / Language

– What elements are described fully enough to allow reader to picture according to author’s imagination?  What elements are described less fully and requires us to elaborate with our own imagination?

– What silences are there?

– Narrative is used to make the flow of experience comprehensible – what experience???

– what kind of language is used with each character? (agentic, passive, etc.)
