Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Shared Storytelling in Euripidean Stichomythia presents the table of contents, and a preface. The idea for this book originated as the author was reading Narrative in Drama: The Art of Euripidean Messenger-Speech by Prof. Irene de Jong. The book consists of two parts. In the first part, Euripidean stichomythia is considered as a form of conversation by means of pragmatics, the study of language use in its communicative context. The second part offers a narratological approach to narrative stichomythia. From a methodological perspective, the authors's research relates observations resulting from pragmatic and narratological research to interpretative questions, and aims to illustrate the potential cross-fertilization between linguistics, narratology and literary interpretation.

Keywords: Euripidean stichomythia; linguistics; literary interpretation; narratology
