  1. polyphonic prose

    Polyphonic prose refers to a type of writing that incorporates multiple voices, perspectives, or narrative threads simultaneously. Derived from music theory, this technique offers a complex, layered narrative where diverse viewpoints harmonize, contrast, or interact with each other. It often lacks traditional narrative structure and involves experimentation with sentence forms and rhythms, allowing the writer to explore different tones, themes, or perspectives within a single piece.
