The Politics and Poetics of Journalistic Narrative

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, Jun 24, 1994 - Literary Criticism - 292 pages
The Politics and Poetics of Journalistic Narrative investigates the textuality of all discourse, arguing that the ideologically charged distinction between 'journalism' and 'fiction' is socially constructed rather than natural. Phyllis Frus separates literariness from aesthetic definitions, regarding it as a way of reading a text through its style to discover how it 'makes' reality.
