Narrative

 

the text of an epic work with the exception of passages of direct speech; the part of the text recounting events and providing descriptions and commentary. The type of narrative depends on who observes the events and who evaluates them: the author, a narrator, or one of the characters. A narrative may be objective, without authorial commentary, as in Chekhov’s works of the 1890’s. In a subjective narrative, the author expresses his own emotions and judgments; an example is L. N. Tolstoy’s manner in the 1890’s, the period of Resurrection. Modern literature no longer has precise boundaries between these types and components of narrative.
