0 Reviews
A collection of 24 essays dedicated to critic Lubomir Dolezel contributing to the theory of fictionality and examining issues in narratology and the history of poetics. The international group of scholars (including renowned critics such as Umberto Eco and Michael Riffaterre) keep their distance from deconstruction and approach fictionality from a philosophical perspective, considering theories of models, character, genre and gender, and dealing with questions of fiction from a historical and poetics standpoint. Two concluding essays expand Dolezel's contribution to the theory of fictionality and fictional semantics, and the works of Homer, Casanova, Woolf, Borges, Kundera, and Bakhtin are given particular attention. Lacks an index. Canadian card order number C95-933272-3. Paper edition (unseen), $24.95. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
