Since the 1990s a new kind of novel has emerged in considerable number, which integrates a wide range of non-linguistic symbolic forms and non-narrative modes into the narrative discourse. These forms encompass visual images of all sorts, but also diagrams or maps and reproductions or imitations of non-narrative texts and genres. Whereas intermediality theories regard and describe such other forms of symbolization as ‘media,’ multimodality theories (originating mainly from social semiotics) conceptualize them as semiotic modes that serve (more or less conventionalized) signifying and communicative purposes. The present contribution introduces the concept of multimodality and demonstrates how it can be applied to understand and describe the sub-genre of the multimodal novel.
