Abstract

In the field of media studies, the articulation between diegetic and extra-diegetic has become a privileged place for the exploration of textual phenomena that characterize media objects. The direct address can be considered an ideal ‘border place’ for the articulation of the diegetic and extra-diegetic dimensions. This paper will analyze the use of the direct address in the TV series House of Cards (first season) from textual, argumentative and interlocutory points of view.
