Literary space in the novel of Ismail Kadare: The palace of dreams (One semiotic approach) 436
This research study will be focusing on the social semiotic approach of Ismail Kadare’s novel called “The Palace of Dreams”. We chose this novel to study and analyze since this book is considered to be one of the most important works of Kadare. The palace of dreams novel brings out many aspects of the Albanian society including its governmental abuse of power during the era of Albania’s communist regime. The analyses of literary space in this novel will focus on locating the literary discourse in the text and the spaces of the text that produce discourse with their form, presence and extension. Moreover, we will analyze these spaces where actions were taking place to see if such actions affect the subject's journey (novel character) and if so, at what level. The goal of this research study is to see how and in what way the meaning is transmitted through spaces, and also how and in what form they serve the comprehensive ideas of the novel. Our purpose is not only to highlight the values of this novel, but rather to make it possible to understand the great importance that space plays in people’s work environments and in their private lives (the characters), and how crucial space is for their lives and destinies.
