Definition of stream of consciousness


Stream of consciousness: We may define stream-of-consciousness fiction as a type of fiction in which the basic emphasis is placed on the exploration of a character's consciousness for the purpose of revealing his mental nature. The important characteristics of the movement of con­sciousness is its ability to move freely in time and space, imit­ating the psychological principle of free association, con­trolled by memory, senses, imagination. There are two basic tech­niques used in presenting stream of consciousness: reported thought and inte­rior monologue.
