From the back cover: Attention is focused not only on the structural patterns of each novel but also on aspects of intertextuality (i.e. allusion, reference codes, etc) and figuration---that is, both metaphorical constructions and functions of narrative rhetoric--thus providing insights into the ways the fictional text 'represents' and problematizes itself. 264pp. Bookseller Inventory # 3006276
Synopsis: These essays that examine eight novels, ranging from 'Le roman comique' to 'Les Liaisons dangereuses', have in common their emphasis on the literarity of the text rather than its referentiality. They draw attention not only to the structuring patterns of each novel, such as chronology and theme, but also to aspects of intertextuality (allusion, reference codes, etc.), and in particular to figuration: that is, both metaphorical constructions and function of narrative rhetoric, which provides insight into the ways the fiction text 'represents' itself.
