Abstract

The Pursuit explores the use of York’s (2015) notion of five act structure within the restricted space of a 600 word flash fiction. Within that space-structure, the work attempts to activate multifaceted characterisation, including a super-objective driven protagonist, antagonism derived from secondary characterisation and place, along with a narrative snare. Meaning in the work is encoded through the interweaving of Barthes’ (1990) hermeneutic and proairetic codes as a mode of sequential structuring, while drawing on the semantic, symbolic and cultural elements of the text to construct a wider story world that is multivalent depending on the experience of the reader.
