Mixing the Frames. Horizontal and Vertical Paralepsis as a Metaleptic Tool for Activating the Fantastic Linkage within a Model of Cognitive and Hermeneutical Processes. The Case of 'Josef K.' by Michele Mari

Abstract : Since Genette first coined the term paralepsis in 1972 to define an unexpected deviation from the focalization statute of a narrative, there have been few narratological studies on this figure. In the light of the works of cognitive science and narratology and some of its postulates, this article propose the construction of a model of the cognitive and hermeneutical processes involved in narrative experience and the placement, within this model, of possible linguistic, narrative and paradigmatic transgression, that can allow the fantastic linkage to emerge. At the same time this article propose an updated definition of paralepsis as a metaleptic tool, as unexpected information that does not concern only an alteration of focalization but an ontological transgression of the levels of narration, delimiting the scope of two potential categories, both with two subtypes (top-down and bottom-up vertical paralepsis; internal and external horizontal paralepsis), and applying its implications to the analysis of the short story 'Josef K.' by Michele Mari (present in the collection Fantasmagonia of 2012).
