    Aarhus University Press 2004; US$ 19.88

    Narratologi er teorien om fortællinger. Forstået i snæver forstand hænger narratologi sammen med den franske strukturalisme og med studiet af litterære teksters forløb, struktur og udsigelse.

  • Die fünf Ströme des Erzählensby Michael Neumann

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 149.99

    Geschichten zu hören und zu erzählen ist ein Urbedürfnis der Menschen, nicht weit hinter Trinken, Essen und Schlafen. Warum das so ist, hat die Anthropologen bislang wenig interessiert.

  • Writing and Rewriting National Theatre Historiesby S.E. Wilmer

    University of Iowa Press 2009; US$ 29.95

    Historians of theatre face the same temptations and challenges as other historians: they negotiate assumptions (their own and those of others) about national identity and national character; they decide what events and actors to highlight--or omit--and what framework and perspective to use for telling the story. Personal biases, trends in scholarship,... more...

  • Representing the Pastby Charlotte M. Canning; Thomas Postlewait

    University of Iowa Press 2010; US$ 29.95

  • Erzähltheorie in mediävistischer Perspektiveby Armin Schulz; Manuel Braun; Alexandra Dunkel; Jan-Dirk Müller

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 210.00

    Dass die Erzähltheorie zu historisieren sei, ist immer wieder gefordert worden.

  • Narrative, Interruptedby Markku Lehtimäki; Laura Karttunen; Maria Mäkelä

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 114.99

    Recent postclassical narratology has constructed top-down reading models that often remain blind to the frame-breaking potential of individual literary narratives. Narrative, Interrupted goes beyond the macro framing typical of postclassical narratology and sets out to sketch approaches more sensitive to generic specificities, disturbing... more...

  • The Dynamics of Narrative Formby John Pier

    De Gruyter 2005; US$ 196.00

    By redefining established topics of narratology, research has become highly diversified.
