Series Title: Studies in Narrative 11
Description:

Beyond Narrative Coherence reconsiders the way we understand and
work with narratives. Even though narrators tend to strive for coherence,
they also add complexity, challenge canonical scripts, and survey lives by
telling highly perplexing and contradictory stories. Many narratives remain
incomplete, ambiguous, and contradictory. Obvious coherence cannot be the
sole moral standard, the only perspective of reading, or the criterion for
selecting and discarding research material. Beyond Narrative
Coherence
addresses the limits and aspects of narrative (dis)cohering
by offering a rich theoretical and historical background to the debate.
Limits of narrative coherence are discussed from the perspective of three
fields of life that often threaten the coherence of narrative: illness,
arts, and traumatic political experience. The authors of the book cover a
wide range of disciplines such as psychology, sociology, arts studies,
political science and philosophy.
