The Question of the Narrator

(p.79) Chapter Five The Question of the Narrator
Comics and Narration

Thierry Groensteen

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter examines the question of “different instances of enunciation” in the graphic narrative and the link between story and narration in comics. It considers the role of the narrator as an intermediary between the story and the reader, the narratology of comic art, the images that make up a comic, and the notion of perceptual source. It also discusses two distinct operations in graphic enunciation: monstration and graphiation. Furthermore, it analyzes the relationship between comics and temporality before concluding with the case of first-person narration by the so-called actorialized narrators.

Keywords:   enunciation, graphic narrative, narration, comics, narratology, perceptual source, monstration, graphiation, temporality, actorialized narrators
