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

About this title:

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.

About the Author: Philip Stewart is professor emeritus at Duke University, Durham, North Carolina. He is the author of 'Imitation and Illusion in the French Memoir-Novel, 1700-1750'; 'The Art of Make-Believe'; (Yale University Press, 1969), 'Le Masque et la parole: le langage de l'amour au XVIIe siecle '(Jose Corti, 1973), and many other scholarly publications.
