About this book
We live in a world of narrative overload, and narratology is beginning to rise to the challenge. The expertise that has evolved in literary studies through the twentieth century now finds applications in every corner of culture, wherever thought and representation operate in the mode of storytelling. This book is an accessible and stimulating summary of the often over-complex theories that have transformed the study of narrative in recent decades. In its theoretical discussions and critical readings, the book plots the connections between fiction, criticism and ideology that represent the contribution of narrative theory to an understanding of postmodern culture.
