Shifting perspectives in pictorial narratives
Emar Maier, Sofia Bimpikou
February 2019

We propose an extension of DRT for analyzing pictorial narratives. We test drive our PicDRT framework by analyzing the way authors represent characters’ mental states and perception in comics. Our investigation goes beyond Abusch and Rooth (2017) in handling not just free perception sequences, but also a form of apparent perspective blending somewhat reminiscent of free indirect discourse.
