Abstract

The main purpose of this work consists on investigating why authors´ or narrators´ direct appeal to receptors is seen in a wide variety of literary works. This problem is highly important to explore syntactic and pragmatic literary construction in Literature as a macro literary fiction act. The presence of this macro literary fiction act is frequently materialized in the so called �pragmatic nucleus� opposed to the so called �semantic nucleus�, constituted by the liminar parts of literary works-chapters or parts of literary fiction �,textual portions not as significant by their meaning or their semantic importance but by their illocutionary contact with receptors. Macro literary fiction acts are mainly motivated, from an evolutionary point of view, by oral expression and their resulting communication, �in praesentia� with receptors. They are also motivated by the influence of Rhetoric, which also constituted an oral fact at the beginning, but whose practice and theorization left its mark on direct appeal to receptors in certain moments of discourse, letter composition and lectures. This theoretical framework is directly applied to some Medieval works such as el Cantar del Cid, Los Milagros de Nuestra Señora by Gonzalo de Berceo, el Libro de Buen Amor by Arcipreste de Hita; el Conde Lucanor by don Juan Manuel, el Arcipreste de Talavera by Alfonso Martínez de Toledo, La Cárcel de Amor by Diego de San Pedro y la Celestina by Fernando de Rojas.
