"Computing and the literary landscape" by Inderjeet Mani

I begin by distinguishing literary from non-literary narrative, and then go onto to describe a framework for narrative computing involving environments for authoring and interacting with literary artifacts as well as searching, analyzing, and translating them. These artifacts concern events whose characters act and react based on their beliefs. I focus here on computational issues related to four facets of narrative structure: story embedding, accessibility relations, time, and plot. I conclude with some recommendations for research strategies.
