Story Comparisons: Evidence from Film Reviews

p094-fisseni.pdf (0.4 MB)


Interested in formally modelling similarity between narratives, we
investigate judgements of similarity between narratives in a small
corpus of film reviews and book–film comparisons. A main finding is
that judgements tend to concern multiple levels of story
representation at once. As these texts are pragmatically related to
reception contexts, we find many references to reception quality and
optimality. We conclude that current formal models of narrative can
not capture the task of naturalistic narrative comparisons given in
the analysed reviews, but that the development of models containing a
more reception-oriented point of view will be necessary.
