Text topic: Narratology
Text author: Горан Гаврић
Paul Klee, had enriched his theoretical work and lectures with narratology in which the visual can be analyzed in close relation to literature and music. Klee expressed his narratology not only in his diaries and letters but also in his lectures where the specific aspects of the narrative where sought in between the textual and the visual. He built the narration by writing as well as reading, at the same time building his own self. In searching and seeking a narration that would be as precise as possible and expressed in adequate form, Klee reached for means offered by literature and music as the two fields that were familiar, and even to some degree, very close to him. As a matter of fact, Klee played the violin in his youth, read extensively and expressed a talent for writing, and being ambivalently inclined to both music and painting as his life calling, he could move between these two field freely, seeking in both of them expression of the visual. This movement resembles the movement of his lines which find adequate paths toward expression of his simultaneously liberated and precise nature.
