Abstract

Dramatis personae of a folktale is a part of the morphology of folktale which advocates the analysis of folktales based on structure instead of theme and motif. Among others, it works as markers in assisting the identification of embedded structures in a folktale. Nevertheless, the theory from which the dramatis personae originates is foreign to Malaysian context. It raises questions whether the dramatis personae is entirely applicable to Malaysian folktales and what is the pattern once it is applied to a folktale of a different culture. Thus, the objectives of the study are to test the applicability of the dramatis personae on a select Malaysian folktale and once tested, to visualise the pattern of the dramatis personae applied. Qualitative text analysis (QTA) method is employed as a vehicle that propels the investigation assisted by Atlas.ti, a computer-aided qualitative data analysis software (CAQDAS) to enhance validity and reliability of the test conducted. Central to this article, the applicability, and the visualisation of the dramatis personae pattern in Malaysian context are hoped to shed lights on the operation of the theory beyond the circumference of the inaugurate culture
