ABSTRACT

In this article we explore two of British crime fiction writer James Hadley Chase's novels in connection with Forster's [Aspects of the Novel] distinction between flat and round characters, later conceptualised by Culpeper [Language and Characterisation, 56] as a scale with certain factors associated with roundness or flatness. Our aim is to position three characters from two of Chase’s novels on the flat/round continuum based on the analysis of selected scenes. The discussion draws together an analysis of agentivity and semantic roles in the first part, which is complemented by an analysis of transitivity patterns and other stylistic features such as naming choices, negation and metaphor in the second part to present an account of characterisation in the selected scenes. Our mixed-method approach under the umbrella of a stylistic analysis of literary texts also makes a case for agentivity analysis (whether a phrase is agentive or non-agentive) to be added to the stylistic toolkit alongside transitivity analysis [Halliday and Matthiesen, Halliday's Introduction to Functional Grammar; Simpson, Language, Ideology and Point of View], including in the case of metaphorical expressions.

詹姆斯·哈德利·蔡斯(James Hadley Chase)犯罪小说中的表征方面:多重视角

摘要

在本文中,我们将探讨两本英国犯罪小说作家詹姆斯·哈德利·蔡斯(James Hadley Chase)的小说,其中涉及福斯特(Forster)[小说的各方面]扁平字符和圆形字符之间的区别,后来又由Culpeper [语言和表征]进行了概念化。,[56]作为标度,其中包含与圆度或平坦度相关的某些因素。我们的目标是根据对选定场景的分析,将大通两部小说中的三个角色定位在平坦/圆形连续体上。讨论在第一部分中对实体性和语义角色进行了分析,第二部分中对可及性模式和其他风格特征(例如命名选择,否定和隐喻)的分析进行了补充,以介绍所选对象的特征描述。场景。我们在文学文本的风格分析框架下的混合方法也为实体性分析(无论是短语是实体的还是非实体的)提供了佐证,可将其与传递性分析一起添加到风格工具包中(Halliday和Matthiesen,Halliday的《功能语法导论》;辛普森,语言,意识形态和观点],包括隐喻表达。
