Narratives in Popular Culture, Media, and Everyday Life
Arthur Asa Berger's newest work, Narratives in Popular Culture, Media, and Everyday Life elucidates narrative theory and applies it to the reader's everyday experience with popular forms of mass media. Many professionals in the social sciences today have developed great interest in narratives and the insights they can provide about people. This one-of-a-kind book helps to interpret narratives while bringing the analysis down to an accessible level. The first part of the volume defines and examines narrative theorists and narrative techniques--a glossary in chapter four defines key terms and concepts. The second half considers the narrative elements of dreams, fairy tales, comics, television, novels, radio, film, and everyday life. Berger's conversational style and illuminating application of narrative technique encourage readers to recognize how narratives shape the media as well as one's own perceptions.
Students and professionals in popular culture, media studies, mass communication, and film studies will enjoy Narratives in Popular Culture, Media, and Everyday Life's treatment of popular texts and films, as well as its easy-to-read format.
