Dramatic Impulses in the Qu'ran: A Study in Function

Abstract

The experience provoked by any Qu'ranic discourse can work by mimesis: the text, recited or read, mirrors emotions and feelings in the Qu'ranic characters; simultaneously, it mediates similar ones to the offstage spectators be they audience or readers. This motivational impulse in the audience is a means of creating an influential role played to repulse vice and attract virtue, an idea that harmonizes with the moralization nature of the Qu'ran. As long as the impulse brings about that end, it is, therefore, dramatic.Interestingly, the terms 'dramatic' and 'impulse' in this work are used as functional and literary elements that help the fulfillment of the moralizational 'message' by transforming the feelings of the characters in the texts onto the offstage audience. Such elements are intrinsically functional, for they would help the effect operate. Nonetheless, the term 'dramatic' is not, and might not be, antonymous of 'theatrical' because a poem and a fiction can be dramatic though not necessarily theatrical. The Qu'ranic discourse, however, is by no means different, for it operates in a similar process of transformation: the readers/audience discover the meaning of the discourse by reflecting upon the action created, drawing conclusions about life, and constituting wisdom permitted by human experience. The Qur'anic discourse is 'dramatic' because "it acts out its meaning."

Abstract

If a grammarian or even an educated person is going to analyze any piece of writing, he/she is certainly going to use certain linguistic devices to make his/her writing good enough. These linguistic devices can be summarized as "cohesive relations which include: reference, substitution, ellipsis, lexical cohesion, conjunction and lexical relation." Being the core of the present study, reference is the only cohesive device that is going to be tackled. Reference means the action by which the speaker or writer uses language to enable the reader or listener to identify something by using some expressions (such as pronouns, demonstratives, etc.) in a particular sentence or speech to identify some entity in the text. There are two main types of reference: exophoric and endophoric.
