“Discontinuity, Disjointedness: Parenthetical Structures and Dashes in Alice Munro’s Stories from Dance of the Happy Shades.”

Abstract : the essay looks at Munro’s use of dashes and parenthetical structures in four stories from the collection Dance of the Happy Shades. As stylistic devices they often illustrate the major themes of a story, and as they disrupt the surface of the text, they create entryways and exits; as they epitomize discontinuities, they are also elements that explain the interrogative quality of Munro’s style.
