Abstract

Isak Dinesen’s “The Dreamers” highlights issues of voice on several levels. The story thematically revolves around the singer Pellegrina Leoni who loses her voice in an accident. As well as tracing how her voice dissolves and resonates in Dinesen’s writing, this article shows how voice can be conceptualized for a discussion of narrative texts. Although there are no concrete voices in this literary genre that can actually be heard, it is in the voice effects of narrative fiction that the aesthetic and the political enter into close dialogue.
