Wielogłosowość reportażu ujęta w formę kolażową
Polyphony of the reportage presented in the collage form
Languages of publication
The object of the interpretative analyses and reflections in the article is a specific text to which the journalist added a peculiar form of the reporter’s narrative. It is a story of a tragic event, presented in a textual collage form which the entire Poland lived through for a few days due to media messaging. It is about the death of a girl initially considered lost on the basis of her mother’s account. The collage message, that is a single-intentional message composed of autonomous utterances representing various genres, consists of the reporter’s narrative and admitted voices. The first category of speech is shaped in a peculiar manner by its added nature of the hypothetical narration, containing a simple narrative of real events, witnessed by the reporter, and metatextual comments polemical towards the other media coverage. The group of the admitted voices includes: utterances of people in the street, fake utterances of the deceased child addressed to her mother, voices of experts and comments of Internet users. They are arranged in two strands of communication: the speech of hatred and voices of empathy. Shaping the reportage in the textual collage form is a creative modification of the genre conventions.
