  • The Narrative Turn in Fiction and Theoryby Hanna Meretoja

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 90.00

    The Narrative Turn in Fiction and Theory explores the philosophical and historical underpinnings of the postwar crisis and return of storytelling and shows their relevance for the ongoing debate on the significance of narrative for human existence. 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. It comprises two elements: firstly cause, the increasing interpenetration of professional literary criticism and the practice of writing; and secondly effect: an emphasis on the playing... more...

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

    Tectum Verlag 2014; US$ 29.07

    '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...

  • The Move Beyond Formby Mary Joe Hughes

    Palgrave Macmillan 2013; US$ 90.00

    Fictional narratives of the late twentieth century often cross boundaries. This study argues that the undoing of structure in postmodern art form demands a different way of thinking and represents a commentary on the material and social conditions of the late twentieth century and beyond. more...

  • Allegorical Quests from Deguileville to Spenserby Marco Nievergelt

    Boydell & Brewer 2012; US$ 90.00

    An examination of sixteenth-century quest narratives, focussing on their conscious use of a medieval tradition to hold a mirror up to contemporary culture. more...

  • The Art & Craft of Writing Christian Fictionby Jeff Gerke

    F+W Media 2012; US$ 17.99

    Let's face it: Christian fiction is fun. Even if you're writing a serious-minded study of man's inhumanity to man, there is something exhilarating about story; about creating people and worlds and events; about telling a tale that keeps readers enraptured and maybe - just maybe - leaves them fortified in their walk with Jesus. But for all of the... more...

  • Literature and Terrorismby Michael C. Frank; Eva Gruber

    Editions Rodopi 2012; US$ 70.20

    The years following the attacks of September 11, 2001 have seen the publication of a wide range of scientific analyses of terrorism. Literary studies seem to lag curiously behind this general shift of academic interest. The present volume sets out to fill this gap. It does so in the conviction that the study of literature has much to offer to the transdisciplinary... more...

  • Shakespeare and Contemporary Fictionby Barbara L. Estrin

    University of Delaware 2012; US$ 84.99

    As the first book to use fiction as theory, Shakespeare and Contemporary Fiction reads backward to demonstrate how recent novelists redeploy foundling and lyric plots to uncover a Shakespeare who similarly challenges the mythological homogeneity that scripts us. more...

  • Strange Voices in Narrative Fictionby Per Krogh Hansen; Stefan Iversen; Henrik Skov Nielsen; Rolf Reitan

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 119.00

    How does narratology relate to narrative strangeness? This question is urgent for narratologists who share a marked skepticism towards the idea of using ?natural? narratives as some kind of genetic model for understanding and interpreting all kinds of narratives, and for whom the distinction of fiction is important. This anthology presents a collection... more...

  • The Stranger - Albert Camusby Harold Bloom

    Infobase Publishing 2011; US$ 45.00

    Camus's landmark novel traces the aftermath of a shocking crime and the man whose fate is sealed with one rash and foolhardy act. The Stranger presents readers with a new kind of protagonist, a man unable to transcend the tedium and inherent absurdity of everyday existence in a world indifferent to the struggles and strivings of its human denizens.... more...
