Narrative Fiction: An Introduction and Anthology
Harcourt Brace College Publishers, Sep 13, 1993 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 816 pages
Narrative Fiction: An Introduction and Anthology provides a gateway into the narrative form. Drawing from the rich heritage of many cultures, this anthology begins by considering often neglected forms of narration such as myth, tale, epic, and romance. Its brief section on poetry demonstrates that verse, too, can be narrative. Finally, its generous selection of short stories and one novel illustrate the most recent realization of the narrative. Narrative Fiction: An Introduction and Anthology provides a basis for richer understanding and appreciation of the contemporary short story and novel.
