Title The narrative construction of everyday reality. A review from the media frames Summary The main aim of this scientific essay is to present an overview about “media frames”, and to question the link between media discourse and quotidian reality. Firstly, we explain some key scientific concepts and we refer to relevant literature about ontological basics of quotidian reality. Secondly, we put into consideration, the subjective, communicative and narrative condition of reality, sometimes undervalued by some theories. Thirdly, we analyse the incidence of the media discourse in the construction of reality. Fourthly, we underlined the scope of “media frames”, both in the configuration (creation) and in the refiguration (reception) of media narratives. The general conclusion we have reached is that this field of study still raises interesting challenges and questions that should be investigated. Keywords Quotidian reality, media frames, communication, narration.
