NARRATOR VERSUS WRITER A NARRATIVE APPROACH ON ATONEMENT
This dissertation puts forward new alternatives approaches by examining narrative commonicative theories and their applicabilities on the contemparary metafictional works. The arguments are debated in direct reference to Genette’s narrative communicative frame. The scope of the study is confined into the relation between the writer and narrator and its possible implications of this bond on metafictional narratives. The relation between the writer and narrator is being argued in graphs by examing and illustrating the fictional innovations and abnormalities on Ian McEwan’s Atonement. On the whole, it is drawn a factual picture of the narrative jamming on Ian McEwan’s Atonement which clarifies the points arisen questions open to debate the unreliability on the communicative and textual levels among the writer, narrator and reader. The graph drawn on the whole consequently underpins the premise that narrative process and innovations may distort the realibility of a work as the ideological intentions and cultural interpretations can do as well as it clarifies the tussle between the writer and narrator throughout the narrative process.
