Narratologische Untersuchungskriterien in Relation zu wirkungs- und rezeptionsästhetischen Konzeptionen:Eine literaturtheoretische Gegenüberstellung anhand von Kanki Takurōs Kurzgeschichte “Der Schlüssel” (Kagi, 1986)


Meyer, H (2009). Narratologische Untersuchungskriterien in Relation zu wirkungs- und rezeptionsästhetischen Konzeptionen:Eine literaturtheoretische Gegenüberstellung anhand von Kanki Takurōs Kurzgeschichte “Der Schlüssel” (Kagi, 1986). Asiatische Studien / Études Asiatiques, 63(3.2009):671-697.

Abstract

Narrativity constitutes an important common feature of historiography and literature. According to Hayden White’s theory of emplotment, historiography must therefore be considered as a substantially fiction-making operation. Investigation criteria of mainly German narrative theories (Käte Hamburger, Franz K. Stanzel, Ansgar Nünning and others) show, however, that fictional narrativity uses specific techniques which do not appear within historiography but prove to be extremely important to distinguish history from fiction. These criteria can easily be used as a means to analyze literary texts, especially if compared to Wolfgang Iser’s more abstract theory of aesthetic response (“Wirkungsgeschichte”) and Hans Robert Jauss’ reception-aesthetics (“Rezeptionsästhetik”). What distinguishes these different directions of literary theories and which areas does narratology not cover? What are the difficulties when reception theories are applied compared to narratological criteria? Kanki Takurō’s short story “The Key” (Kagi, 1986) may serve as an example for narratological investigations together with an examination of the ways in which literary works are received by readers.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
