Story of the Forest (1)

March 5, 2010 § Leave a comment

The story of the forest could be seen as a story of transformation, a process which can be related to the passing of time; growth and change. The fabula element events can be defined as the processes of nature (e.g. sprouting, withering), and the actor performing the events is the forest/nature itself. How the fabula element time is portrayed will affect what the story will be: the forest as a place of eternity or the forest as decaying and dying, for instance. The text is here made up of one primary sign: the forest itself. This sign denotes nature and growth. The forest-sign can also be interpreted in an anthropomorphizing way, which also will affect the story – changing from a narrative of nature, to become an allegory over human life, or seen as a portrayal of a mental state.
