Lost Locus Impetus

Found this note (slipped in a box of papers) and regret that there is no bibliographic information connected with it. My Internet searches yield no location for this:

Riffaterre – telos marks the difference between narration and description

But I did find (offline and in my little library), Riffaterre’s Fictional Truth where in the glossary there is an entry for “Telos: the limited options for and restrictive means towards the denouement of plot allowed by the narrative given and by the genre to which the narrative belongs.” That’s the beginning of sparks for the grey matter.

And so for day 3128
