Abstract

After sketching out a history of twentieth-century structuralist linguistics and poetics, the article presents Greimas’s theoretical contribution to the semiotic study of narratives at various levels, including actants, actors and their kinds of competence, the semiotic square that gives narratives their general meaning, the variety of figures employed, and the thematic fields evoked.
