Chapter Summary

The overwhelming production of literature and theories about narratology demonstrates the challenge posed by narrative. In narratology, the Saussurean linguistic model has been extended to the semiotic fields of other social constructs such as literature, myth, history, religion, sociology, anthropology, psychology, architecture, fashion and film. Both narrative and personification have been objectified in the pursuit of their categorisation. A narrative reading of Isa. 52:13-53:12 is motivated by rhetorics of narrative, in which an agent tells a story in language. This chapter distinguishes between story and narration, and apply narrative as a term embracing both. By this structural distinction between story and narration, a narrative reading of the text shows counter-suggestions which overturn the hierarchy. The narrative constructs the identities of the characters in constructing the story told.

Keywords: Isa; narrative; Saussurea
