    • Abstract:
      This paper explores the relationship of time to narrative structure and to an ethical dimension of the literary experience in Flannery O'Connor's tales, drawing on G. S. Morson's notions of foreshadowing, backshadowing and sideshadowing and on Bakhtin's concept of the chronotope. It is my contention that O'Connor's tales, despite their realism 'of distances' and hyperbolic features, do not abolish the essential openness of time: in fact, the tales incorporate a surprising variety of temporal devices through which a peculiar spectrum ranging from inevitability to contingency, from closure to aperture, and from late to providence may be observed. The following analysis discusses this progression, focusing on a selection of tales that can be taken as models for the rest. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
    • Abstract:
      Partiendo de las nociones de foreshadowing, backshadowing, sideshadowing (Morson) y del concepto de cronotopo (Bakhtin), este artículo analiza la relación entre el tiempo, la estructura narrativa y la dimensión ética de la experiencia en los cuentos de Flannery O'Connor. El análisis refleja que los relatos de O'Connor, pese a su realismo 'de distancias'y rasgos hiperbólicos, no anulan el carácter abierto del tiempo, sino que incorporan una sorprendente diversidad de recursos temporales que permiten descubrir una temporalidad de amplio espectro, que se extiende desde la inevitabilidad hasta la contingencia, desde el final cerrado hasta el abierto, desde el destino hasta la providencia. El artículo estudia esa progresión, centrándose en una selección de cuentos que pueden tomarse como modelos para el resto. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
