Reading a narrative is very interesting. Salah satu contoh teks narrative adalah cerita rakyat. Kenapa cerita rakyat yang ditulis bisa disebut sebagai narrative text? Element conflict antar pelaku cerita dalam dongen, legenda, cerita rakyat biasanya begitu kental. Itulah kenapa secara sederhana cerita rakyat umumnya bisa di kategorikan sebagai sebuah text narrative.  Let's see the following example of narrative text!

Narrative Text: The story of Toba Lake
Contoh narrative text: the tory of lake Toba

Once upon a time, there was a man who was living in north Sumatra. He lived in a simple hut in a farming field. The did some gardening and fishing for his daily life.
One day, while the man was do fishing, he caught a big golden fish in his trap. It was the biggest catch which he ever had in his life. Surprisingly, this fish turned into a beautiful princess. He felt in love with her and proposed her to be his wife. She said; "Yes, but you have to promise not to tell anyone about the secret that I was once a fish, otherwise there will be a huge disaster". The man made the deal and they got married, lived happily and had a daughter.
Few years later, this daughter would help bringing lunch to her father out in the fields. One day, his daughter was so hungry and she ate his father’s lunch. Unfortunately, he found out and got furious, and shouted; “You damned daughter of a fish”. The daughter ran home and asked her mother. The mother started crying, felt sad that her husband had broke his promise.
Then she told her daughter to run up the hills because a huge disaster was about to come. When her daughter left, she prayed. Soon there was a big earthquake followed by non-stop pouring rain. The whole area got flooded and became Toba Lake. She turned into a fish again and the man became the island of Samosir.

    used to refer to the sequence of events described in a narrative. A narrative can
    also be told by a character within a larger narrative. An important part of narration

  14. A narrative is similarly organized in generic structure as a recount text has. It proposes the idea to tell an experience. both texts can be factual or imaginative. However a narrative is commonly presented a story. As we know a story is build with complications among the participant.
    The above narrative can be seen its generic structure:
    ORIENTATION, It introduce the participants, a man who lived in North Sumatra, the caught fish, and their daughter.
    COMPLICATION, the existence of conflict is primarily importance as it determine the running of the plot of the story. In that story of Toba Lake, wee see that the major factor of the complication is how hard to keep the promise not to tell anyone who is actually the wife.
    RESOLUTION, it shows how a conflict is solved. It can be sad or happy ending. In that story we know that the main character failed to keep his promise so it leads the disaster which ends the story.
