A Generative Narratology Framework

This paper proposes a Generative Narratology Framework as a new approach to describing narrative as a cognitive process.

The proposed method is influenced by cognitive narratology and conceptual blending theories that assume reading to be a process of constructing a cognitively negotiable world. Conceptual blending stops when real readers move from perceiving themselves as implied readers tracking the perception of a narrator. The generative narratology framework takes several steps forward in its aim to (re)construct the narrator's side of negotiations. The advanced framework in the paper uses the opening page of Nabokov's Ultima Thule to show the process in action.
