Narratives in the news:
–Here is a smart piece about why some of us are drawn to TV narratives like Downton and other shows with strong narratives.
–Here is a smart piece about the power of narrators (although I think there is a bit of confusion here between narrators and protagonists, which are not the same).
One response to “The power of story”
Chris, Thanks so much for sending these along, especially Steve Almond’s article. I do see what you mean about ‘narrator’ vs. ‘protagonist’. Interestingly, Steve Almond, who is a local guy with his own blog alled The Rumpus, is the son of two psychoanalysts in California, and I always hear a background of attunement to the underlying story in his analysis of fiction, film or other cultural products. Hope you, Ann and the kids have a great 2013. Best, Chris Lovett
