Today we learnt more about the Digital Narrative module. Prior to the lesson, I read a pdf named Narratology by Mieke Bal, Bal (p1) which explained that ‘narratology is the theory of narrative texts’.
Some basic terms of a narrative include story, plot and synopsis although the three mean the same thing. I never knew that a narrative and story are two completely different things, so it was handy to learn about it.
We watched part of a movie named Waltz with Bashir, this was an interesting narrative about characters who relay their unique experiences of a conflict in Lebanon to the audience, a term related to this is known as ‘Breaking the Fourth Wall’.
