Rhythm is a concept that is often informally applied to narrative, for instance when we talk about the slowness of a long novel or the fast pace of an action film. Current work in both the mind sciences and narrative theory allows us to think about the rhythmicity of narrative in a more systematic way. In this talk, I focus on the "scalability" of rhythm, how rhythmic patterns exist at multiple levels of the text-reader interaction. Using a short story by Lauren Groff ("Boca Raton") as a case study, I explore rhythm as deriving from both bottom-up and top-down effects in narrative experience. I ground my discussion in recent developments within the cognitive sciences, particularly so-called "enactivist" approaches to the reader's mind.
