    Mary Ann Caws presents in detail an important feature of modern literary narrative--the setting apart of passages that stand out from the flow of the prose, larger-than-life scenes that seem to hold the essence of the work. Originally published in 1985. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available... more...

  • Ethos and Narrative Interpretationby Liesbeth Korthals Altes

    UNP - Nebraska 2014; US$ 60.00

    Ethos and Narrative Interpretation examines the fruitfulness of the concept of ethos for the theory and analysis of literary narrative.

How and why do readers attribute an ethos (of, for example,... more...

  • Resisting Novels: Ideology and Fictionby Lennard J. Davis

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 130.00

    "By making friends with signs", Lennard Davis argues, "we are weakening the bond that anchors us to the social world, the world of action, and binding ourselves to the ideological." For the reader, this power of the novel needs to be resisted. But there is a double resistance at work: the novel is also a defensive structure positioning us against... more...

  • Metafictionby Mark Currie

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 70.95

    Metafiction is one of the most distinctive features of postwar fiction, appearing in the work of novelists as varied as Eco, Borges, Martin Amis and Julian Barnes.

  • Short Storyby Valerie Shaw

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 83.95

    Throughout this text, Valerie Shaw addresses two key questions: 'What are the special satisfactions afforded by reading short stories?' and 'How are these satisfactions derived from each story's literary techniques and narrative strategies?'.

  • Faktualität und Fiktionalität in autobiographischen Texten des 20. Jahrhundertsby Esther Kraus

    Tectum Verlag 2014; US$ 29.76

    'Die Dichter lügen' - nicht. Platons Vorwurf ist literaturwissenschaftlich längst entkräftet: Fiktionale literarische Texte erzählen Erfundenes - allerdings nicht, um den Leser zu täuschen, sondern um ihn unter Einhaltung bestimmter Spielregeln zu unterhalten. Was aber passiert, wenn eben diese Regeln verletzt werden - und literarische Texte Konventionen... more...
