Course Description

A metafictional text is one that draws attention to its own fictionality. Metafictionality is widespread in modern novels, films, drama and other art forms. In the case of drama the term "metadrama" is also used to refer to this phenomenon. Various techniques can be used to highlight the fictionality of drama including: the play-within–a play, comments directly addressed to the audience, and blurrings of different narrative and textual spaces (metalepsis). Familiarity with metafictional techniques in drama will be of use in a wide range of literary and cultural study contexts.

Course Requirements

Students are encouraged to form groups to specialise in, and present a play. All forms of examinations will be available, including written exams and short papers as well as projects. Students should try to read the primary texts before the start of term.
