Narrative - Theory
David H. Richter
Longman Publishers, 1996 - Literary Collections - 330 pages
The essays in Narrative/Theory constitute a short course in the theory of fiction representing most of the current perspectives in the contemporary conversation about narrative, literary and otherwise. It could be used as a primary text in a course in the theory of fiction for which no currently adequate textbook exists; but we expect the book to find its widest use as an ancillary text for courses in the novel, the short story, and film, where it can be used to enrich and deepen students' understanding of the concepts involved in the analysis of narrative.
