A potential development for cognitive poetics: text world theory and verbo-visual narratives

FullSizeRender-3

I’ve posted this essay in pdf format because it’s almost 4000 words long and there are lots of pictures, so it’s a bit easier this way. This is my first foray into text world theory and I’ve got some of it wrong, to be honest, so if you want to make use of the arguments here then please do so with that in mind. Please note also that there are spoilers, in particular with reference to Hannah Berry’s Livestock. 

Here’s the essay: A potential development for cognitive poetics. Text world theory and verbo-visual narratives.

Comments and suggestions most welcome!
