About this title

Synopsis:

History, literature, religion, myth, film, psychology, theory, and daily conversation all rely heavily upon narrative. So it is hardly surprising that studies of the art of narrative abound. Narrative has a language much its own, with regularly recurring patterns, deeply established conventions for transmission, and interpretive codes, whether in a novel, cartoon, or case study. Cutting across many disciplines, narratology describes and analyzes this language, and only recently have serious attempts been made to regularize it to permit one expert to understand another. In A Dictionary of Narratology, Gerald Prince provides quick and reliable access to terms and concepts that are defined, illustrated, and cross-referenced. All entries are keyed to articles or books in which the terms originate or are exemplified. Important as the first book of its kind, A Dictionary of Narratology should prove indispensable to writers, critics, and scholars in many fields.

From the Inside Flap:

"An essential book for the study of narrative."—Southern Humanities Review.

"A Dictionary of Narratology is a remarkable feat. It is a specialized dictionary documenting important research, compiled by a scholar who has been centrally involved in the field and who writes with clarity, precision, and a sense of humor."—Substance.

"A very useful compilation of definitions of the terms used in narrative theory. . . . Prince is eclectic and uses the elements of many schools of theory. The book is well cross-referenced and it contains a carefully selected bibliography of the essential works in the field."—American Literary Scholarship.

Indispensable to writers, critics, and scholars in many fields, A Dictionary of Narratology provides quick and reliable access to terms and concepts that are defined, illustrated, and cross-referenced. All entries are keyed to articles or books in which the terms originated or are exemplified. This revised edition contains additional entries and updates some existing ones.
