La complessità della narrazione e della narratologia

Federico Pianzola

Abstract


Negli ultimi cinque anni vi è stata un’attenzione crescente per le teorie della complessità da parte di narratologi. La recente summadella narratologia mondialeEmerging vectors of Narratology(Hansen et al. 2017) contiene due saggi dedicati a questo tema e due volumi collettivi sono in pubblicazione. Questo articolo presenta le motivazioni di tale interesse per la complessità e traccia alcuni percorsi intorno a concezioni sistemiche della narrazione, dal Formalismo russo, ad una recente proposta di John Pier, fino a giungere alla narratologia cognitivista di seconda generazione.


In the last five years the attention of narratologists for complexity theory has been growing. The recent most comprehensive collection of narratology, Emerging vectors of Narratology(Hansen et al. 2017), includes two essays on the topic and two other collective books are forthcoming. This article explores the motivation of such interest in complexity and puts forth some reflections on systemic conceptions of narrative, from Russian Formalism, to a recent proposal by John Pier, ending with second generation cognitive narratology.
