Immersion for entangled audiences : the nonhuman world and affective patterning in narrative experiences

Tijdschriftbijdrage - Tijdschriftartikel

The language of U+201CimmersionU+201D in a fictional text lends itself to a dualistic reading that is, at best, unwelcome when attempting to think about narrative experiences ecologically. In this article, I argue for a model of narrative-audience interactions that privileges immersion as affective and temporal entanglement in stories over the containment model. I use Le quattro volte, a 2010 film by Italian director Michelangelo Frammartino, to exemplify this alternative understanding of audiencesU+2019 engagement with narrative and discuss its ramifications for recent work at the intersection of narrative theory and ecocriticism.
