Book Information


Title: Towards a "Natural" Narratology
Written By: Monika Fludernik

In this ground breaking work of synthesis, Monika Fludernik combines
insights from literary theory and linguistics to provide a challenging new
theory of narrative.

This book is both an historical survey and theoretical study, with the
author drawing on an enormous range of examples from the earliest oral
study to contemporary experimental fiction. She uses these examples to
prove that recent literature, far from heralding the final collapse of
narrative, represents the epitome of a centuries long developmental process.
