In brief,

My definition of narrative


Narrative and narratives can be defined, no doubt, in many ways. The challenge is to give a short, clear and reliable definition which meets most cases of what most people mean by narrative in most contexts.

My definition of narrative might of course be elaborated further. But as it has been amply quoted in narratological literature all round the world, to keep it short, here it is:

"A narrative is the semiotic representation of a series of events meaningfully connected in a temporal and causal way."  

The definition appears in Narratology: An Introduction, ed. Susana Onega and José Angel García Landa (London: Addison Wesley Longman, 1996: p. 3).

Although now I have taken it from this recent book which quotes it approvingly ("Tenslotte nog een geschikte definitie"):

 
Evink, Eddo. Horizon - Spel - Verhaal: Contouren van een hedendaagse metafysica. Amsterdam: Open Universiteit, 2018.
         2019
 
It is quoted in English everywhere, of course, but I may as well provide a Spanish translation here:

"Una narración es la representación semiótica de una serie de acontecimientos conectados significativamente de manera temporal y causal".
