“Text Formula” of Popular Fiction and Its Connotations: Stephen King’s Horror The Dark Half as an Ex

By Jen-chieh Tsai
REAL: Review of English and American Literature [Yingmei wenxue pinglun]

This paper proposes the concept of “text formula” for popular fiction. The proposed formula is theoretically grounded on how Roland Barthes distinguishes “text” from “work.” In so doing, it enables the study of formula to differ from traditional studies which focus on the contents of a story. Text formula pushes the envelope by taking into account things that surround the published story and seem to repeat themselves in popular fiction one after another.
