Textual Surprises


Textual Surprises

“Textual Surprises” is a subject that has as many aspects as our speakers were be able to discover: they may range from more or less straightforward textual surprises (such as: moments of peripeteia and recognition or the surprising choice of a particular word or phrase, rhythm, motif, subject…) to surprises which are perhaps less obvious: they belong to the process of reading, in which sudden discoveries are made or in which the reader’s ideas are unsettled or overturned by the text.
