Mariusz M. LEŚ – The Topos of Utopia and Narrative Topology

Cena brutto: 7,00 PLN

The present article contains a description of the evolution of the narrative strategies used by authors who have contributed to the tradition of literary utopia. The author approaches utopia as a literary topos. Adopting such an attitude makes it possible to integrate the theory of fictional discourse, narratology, and embedded ideology. The conclusion of the argument is that that narrative strategies considered in spatial metaphors (e.g. smooth transformations, an escape from the center, or a move towards it) enable an applicative modulation inside the utopian topos and a discourse built around it.

Keywords: utopia, dystopia, narratology, ideology of the narrative
