Abstract

Spanisha Abstract: Analizamos la estructura narrativa del drama de J. B. Priestley "Time and the Conways" (1937) examinando su uso de las anacronías objetivas en relación a la estructura hermenéutica retrospectiva inherente a toda representación narrativa, que da lugar a una disjunción temporal que denominamos la "falacia narrativa".

English Abstract: An analysis of the narrative structure of J. B. Priesley's drama "Time and the Conways" (1937). The paper analyzes its use of objective anachronies in relation to the retrospective hermeneutic structure inherent in any narrative representation, which gives rise to a temporal disjunction we dub the "narrative fallacy".
