Abstract

Analyses of intermediality in narrative fiction have mainly focused on the evocation of images in the main body of the text. More recently, intermedial research has started to include visual material in multimodal narratives. The present essay explores an issue neglected by these two approaches, namely the interplay between visual illustration and verbal representation as interdependent framing devices. The examples under scrutiny offer multiple framings and frame-breaks, provoking reflections on representation, media, and interpretation.
