BARROS, Diana Luz Pessoa de. Narrativity in Semiotics. Tóp. Sem [online]. 2017, n.37, pp.25-47. ISSN 2594-0619.

In the first part of this paper, we reassess the steps and the three main jumps, or ruptures, responsible for the coming about of semiotic studies of narrativity: From the Proppian functions to narrative utterances; from the subject’s performance to their competence and their competence and modal existence; from modality to passions. In the second part, we point out the new paths and perspectives in development. Two main new proposals are considered here: the semiotic study of passions, which, having preconditions of meaning, resolve many of the difficulties faced in earlier semiotic treatments of passions and esthesis; Landowski’s regimes of interaction and meaning, who reformulated narrative syntax and proposed not just a relation of conjunction between the subject and the object in the utterance, but also of union.

Keywords : narrative semiotics; semiotic of passions; regimes of interaction and meaning.
