The Chronotope of the Photograph

Andrew D. Miller

Liverpool University Press

The chapter addresses the primary aspects of the ekphrasis of photographs. Using Mikhail Bahktin’s theory of the chronotope of the novel, the chapter defines what it terms “the chronotope of the photograph”, describing this as a narrative space that occurs between a photographic image and a poetic speaker. The primary example is taken from Walter Benjamin’s essay “A Brief History of Photography”.

Keywords:   Ekphrasis photography chronotope narrative apostrophe metonymy enargeia
