The narrative text concept is equivalent to another, the narrative genre. By it is meant the description of descriptive or dialogued passages, which tell the experiences of certain characters in a given space and time. narrative text can be literary even sometimes appearing in press releases or other formats.
the narrator figure
For there to be a narrative text there must necessarily be a narrator who tells a story. There are different types of narrators. The narrator’s resource in third person is used when he is oblivious to the events of the story he tells. An account can be presented through an omniscient narrator, who is one who knows all the reality described (the characters’ thoughts and feelings ). Narrative Text
The limited narrator tells something like a movie camera , that is, he observes what happens, but does not enter into the characters’ thoughts or feelings. There are also stories narrated in the first person, in which the narrator himself tells something through his personal experience. Another possible option is for the narrator to be a secondary character in the story, in this case we are talking about a witness narrator.
There is no narration without characters, which are not always people, as it can be an animated object or an animal
Anyway, the characters are classified into three groups : protagonists, antagonists and minors. The protagonist is the main character in the story and the reader follows the course of events through him.
As their name implies, the minor characters play little role in the story.
In relation to the characters should be pointed out that some maintain the same characteristics throughout the narrative, while others evolve during the reporting.
time in narration
In a story it is possible to tell facts that refer to very different temporary situations, from what happens in an hour to what happens for a hundred years or more. For this reason, the narrator has the option of speeding up the narrative or slowing it down.
