ELLIPSIS IN LITERARY AND FILM NARRATION (PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK BY JOAN LINDSAY AND PETER WEIR) (Elipsa w narracji literackiej i filmowej. Piknik pod wiszaca skala)
Languages of publication
Basing on the mysterious novel written by Joan Lindsay Picnic at Hanging Rock (1967) and its famous adaptation by Peter Weir (1975), the author of the article investigates the problem of indirect 'creating the reality beyond our perception' in the narrative arts. The paper proves that such use may be made of one kind of ellipsis ('a great ellipses'), understood as a significant figure of narration: it is described as a textual structure that - in some contexts - organizes metaphysical meanings. The author also raises the question of different medial contextualizations of the ellipsis in literature and film.
