Chapter Summary

This chapter concerns with the actual method of the combination of the diverse texts of the Āpaddharmaparvan (ĀDhP). It concerns with particular aspects of the framing and interloctory system of the ĀDhP, since it is primarily this system that fashions the ĀDhP's texts into a whole. The chapter also concerns with the specific details of the framing system of the ĀDhP. It discusses some matters of methodological and theoretical interest. It also analyses and discusses the interlocutory system of the ĀDhP. Finally, the chapter analyses some framing motifs and individual features of the interlocutory-framing system, especially such rhetorical units as praśnas, 'statements of intent' and 'concluding statements' that effectively 'pace' the narrative.

Keywords: Āpaddharmaparvan (ĀDhP); interlocutory-framing system; praśnas
