Narrative Text (Teks Narasi)

Narrative text merupakan salah satu bentuk teks dalam menyusun sebuah cerita yang berbentuk fiksi seperti halnya Mitos, dongeng; legenda dan lain sebagainya. Ini merupakan salah satu jenis teks (types of text) didalam bahasa Inggris. 

Berdasarkan definisinya secara sederhana Narrative text dapat diartikan sebagai suatu text yang menceritakan sebuah cerita yang bersifat menghibur para pembaca. 

A narrative is a text that tells a story and, in doing so, entertains the audience. The purpose of a narrative, other than providing entertainment, can be to make the audience think about an issue, teach them a lesson, or excite their emotions.

Dalam Penyusunan Narrative Text ada beberapa yang harus kita patuhi yakni Features of Narrative, yaitu:

  • Orientation:In this paragraph the narrator tells the audience who is in the story, when it is happening, where it is happening and what is going on. Artinya didalam paragraf tersebut narrator (pengarang cerita) menceritakan kepada para pembaca tentang siapa yang berperan dalam cerita tersebut, kapan dan dimana peristiwa tersebut terjadi serta apa yang terjadi.  
  • Complication: This is the part of the story where the narrator tells about something that will begin a chain of events. These events will affect one or more of the characters. The complication is the trigger.
  • Sequence of Event: This is where the narrator tells how the characters react to the complication. It includes their feelings and what they do. The events can be told in chronological order (the order in which they happen) or with flashbacks. The audience is given the narrator’s point of view.
  • Resolution: In this part of the narrative the complication is sorted out or the problem is solved
  • Coda: The narrator includes a coda if there is a moral or message to be learned from the story.
