Abstract

This study is an attempt to throw a sideways glance at the narratology of The Odyssey. The paper is based on some narratological concepts introduced by Grerard Genet including Recit, histoire, order, duration frequency, mood, voice, heterodiegetic, homodiegetic and autodiegetic narrator. It further applies Bremond’s three stage model of analysis of plot that includes possibility, process, and outcome and Jakobson’s view of narratoral discourse performing emotive, conative, and referential functions to The Odyssey. The study focuses on only first four books of Homer’s The Odyssey. The paper is divided into two parts. The first part deals with the theoretical concepts while the second one deals with the implication of these concepts upon the selected text. The research paper is significant as it attempts to study The Odyssey from less explored dimension.
