Abstract


This study on “The Narrative Technique in Winnie Eads’ Short Story The Grandfather: A Stylistic Approach” takes as its focus the narrative technique which generates the aesthetic effects of the story. The narrative technique designed to be adopted for the narration of the story in the first person and merely by a kid narrator necessarily integrates into itself the language style which is constituted by such specific use of language (English) to suit the aesthetic need of the narration. The aesthetic effect achieved through the fusion of the child first-person narration and the specific language style in the story is one in the form of aesthetics of realism, particularly realism in the characterization of the grandfather as the main character and of Pete as the child narrator, which constitutes the attractiveness of the story. Using a stylistic approach in the analysis of the narration, this article is aimed at revealing how the specific language use in the short story The Grandfather constitutes a quite effective device for aesthetic achievement.
