In homocommunicative narratives, either the individual telling the story (the narrator) or the individual receiving this transmission (the narratee) is also a character in the story. In other words, one of these two individuals participates in both the narrated event and the event of narration. Homocommunicative narratives are either first-person narratives, in which the narrator is a character in the story, or second-person narratives, in which the narratee is a character in the story.
Daniel Defoe's Moll Flanders is, for instance, a homocommunicative narrative, as its narrator, Moll, transmits the story of her own adventures to her audience. Thus, Moll is involved in both the narrative and its narration: "“It is enough to tell you, that as some of my worst comrades . . . knew me by the name of Moll Flanders, so you may give me leave to speak of myself under that name till I dare own who I have been, as well as who I am” (11).
