Narrative Space and the Location of Meaning


Mühlheim, Martin; Heusser, Martin (2007). Narrative Space and the Location of Meaning. Academic Exchange Quarterly, 11(1):26-30.

Abstract

This essay presents a practical approach that focuses on three aspects of narrative space. The approach is exemplified with a reading of Janet Frame's "You Are Now Entering the Human Heart." This text is short and thus ideally suited for discussion in class. The reading of Frame's story demonstrates that space is crucial in situating literary meaning in specific cultural contexts.
