The Comic Representation of Identity and Otherness in a Narrative Text: a Case-Study

Publication: Philologica Jassyensia, VII (1), p. 89-95

Abstract:The paper aims to support previous research on the importance of the script-based semantic theory for the study of literary humor. The first part of the article includes a brief description of the semantic scripts theory (Raskin 1985) and some of its later modifications. The next sections analyze some excerpts from the novel Sunt o babă comunistă! by the Romanian author Dan Lungu. The outcomes show that complex networks of scripts are activated in a literary narrative and that, besides the semantic information, the cultural dimension of the scripts activated in literary texts should be taken into account.
Key words:humor, script, identity, otherness, narrative, Romanian
