Gerald Prince, "Narratology in Translation" with respondent Paul Dawson August 29, Monday, December 3, - pm Barbie Tootle Room, Ohio Union In their explorations of narrative, many narratologists distinguish between the narrated the situations and events presented , the narrating the way these situations and events are presented , and the concrete manifestation of narrated and narrating in a particular medium linguistic, say, pictorial, balletic or a particular form thereof English or French, film or painting, classical or modern. By and large, narratologists focus on the narrated and the narrating rather than on the medium of manifestation.
