Projects and projections: on focus and perspective in drama

Abstract [en]

The article examines the concept of focus and perspective in drama, a genre traditionally uncared for by narrative theory. The topic is treated in a twofold manner. The first part of the paper discusses examples from classical, fin de siècle and modernist dramatic texts using subjectivity on the discursive level, as representational projections of figural perception and consciousness. The second part treats subjectivity on the structural level of narrative projects. By revising the Greimasian actantial model the author tries to define dramatic narrative in terms of power, as the dialectic between hierarchical relations of centrality and marginality, something which becomes manifest in the genre’s conventional list of dramatis personae.
