Comparative narratology is a science that can be used to compare and contrast different narratives, with different languages, cultures and details from around the world, and to explore their similarities and differences.
This research studies six similar narrations of world’s literature, whose motifs are based on accusation and exoneration. Using Tzvetan Todorov’s theory, it tries to answer this main question: Are these narrations similar; in spite of their different geographical origin and narrator’s culture?
These narrations are titled: Tennes and Philonome, Cristiano and Godelinda, Hrólfs saga Kraka, Joseph and Potiphar's Wife, Yin-Kiao and Su-ta-ki, The Prince and The Bondwoman.
Finally, the research findings reinforce the hypothesis that these six narratives, despite their apparent and minor differences, have the same grammar and are similar to each other.
