Chapter Summary

Since the role of the reader as narratee is central to a cognitive narratological approach, this chapter elaborates on the sense of otherness, experienced by the reader, as well as on the concept of connectedness, created by the very same narrative. These are the two relevant aspects for the understanding of author's argument about seamless movement between two participatory locations, the internal and external experience of the narratee. He focuses on the reading experience, how his or her situatedness reflects the mental attitude to reality and to the nature of existence. This chapter shows how the fusion of two separate worlds contributes to the fascination in the reader/audience. The Apocalypse reflects life in a specific ambience that is not available in the empirical world, or is, at times, even denied by it. The analysis of the narratee experience approaches the reading through connectedness of life with relation to the other.

Keywords: Apocalypse; connectedness of life; narratee experience; narrative; narratological approach; reading experience
