The Important Things about Recount Text and Narrative Text

Below are some important things to remember when learning this retelling event text

What does recount differ from narrative?
The easiest way to catch the difference is analyzing the generic structure. Recount text presents the past experiences in order of time or place; what happened on Sunday, then on Monday, the on Tuesday. In simple way, recount describes series of events in detail. It does not expose the struggle on how to make them happen. The event happened smoothly. 

After all, on the other hand, narrative introduces crises and how to solve them. Narrative text always appear as a hard portrait of participant's past experience. It reveals the conflict among the participants. Cinderella's conflicts with her step mother and sister are the example. The conflict is the most important element in a narrative text. Narrative without conflicts is not narrative any more.
