This taxonomy has been developed for students at BA or MA Level, who have frequently come across difficulty in critical reading. One reason for that might be the fact that students are to some considerable extent alienated from the reading medium in its conventional sense and unable to be authentically involved in the act of reading.

Şiirde anlatısallık yapıtın türünü olmasa da modunu belirleyen önemli bir unsur olarak karşımıza çıkar. Bu anlatısallığa çoğu zaman monolog kullanımı eşlik eder. Bunun örneklerine gerek dünya şiirinde gerekse Türk şiirinde rastlamak mümkündür. Modern Türk edebiyatında haklı bir yer edinmiş şair ve romancılardan Murathan Mungan’ın roman ve öykülerin...

Poems and song lyrics frequently get beyond the limits of mere expression since they have an innate narrativity potential.

Lyricality is as important as, or more important than, the musical quality of a song. Although the effect of the lyrics is mostly enhanced by musical elements, the quality of lyrics is determined by certain discursive elements such as figural language and narrative structure. This paper explores lyricality and musicality in terms of figurative and...

Literary texts are full of gaps, not only due to missing parts in the text but also ambiguous elements. Therefore, texts are open works, in Umberto Eco's terms, in that the readers can have a role in the interpretation of the gaps and ambiguities in a given text. Moreover, even universal signs, images or symbols in a text can turn out to be ambiguo...

Imprisoned in the central social role of motherhood, intellectually inferiorized by male critics and fearing...
