Most widely held works by Gérard Genette
Narrative discourse : an essay in method by Gérard Genette ( Book )
71 editions published between 1979 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 1,754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Genette uses Proust's Remembrance of Things Past as a work to identify and name the basic constituents and techniques of narrative. Genette illustrates the examples by referring to other literary works. His systemic theory of narrative deals with the structure of fiction, including fictional devices that go unnoticed and whose implications fulfill the Western narrative tradition
Paratexts : thresholds of interpretation by Gérard Genette ( )
18 editions published between 1977 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Paratexts are those liminal devices and conventions, both within and outside the book, that form part of the complex mediation between book, author, publisher, and reader: titles, forewords, epigraphs, and publishers' jacket copy are part of a book's private and public history. In Paratexts, an English translation of Seuils, Gerard Genette shows how the special pragmatic status of paratextual declarations requires a carefully calibrated analysis of their illocutionary force. With clarity, precision, and an extraordinary range of reference, Paratexts constitutes an encyclopedic survey of the customs and institutions of the Republic of Letters as they are revealed in the borderlands of the text. Genette presents a global view of these liminal mediations and the logic of their relation to the reading public by studying each element as a literary function. Richard Macksey's foreword describes how the poetics of paratexts interacts with more general questions of literature as a cultural institution, and situates Genette's work in contemporary literary theory."--BOOK JACKET

Palimpsestes : la littérature au second degré by Gérard Genette ( Book )
36 editions published between 1982 and 2007 in French and held by 693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ouvrage de recherche sémiologique qui s'inscrit dans le sillage des travaux de Mikhaïl Bakhtine, Julia Kristeva et Michael Riffaterre. Il s'agit d'une réflexion d'ensemble sur la façon dont toute écriture est aussi une lecture. A l'identification classique des sources, Genette substitue une analyse de l'ensemble des mécanismes et des procédés de transposition, transformation, ré-écriture, comme l'écrit Guy Scarpetta. Selon Genette le plagiat est nécessaire; il constitue une dimension historique importante des textes. Non seulement le plagiat (enfant pauvre) mais aussi le pastiche et la parodie. Principaux auteurs abordés: Joyce, Proust, Thomas Mann. Puissant. [SDM]

14 editions published between 1982 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"By definition, a palimpsest is "a written document, usually on vellum or parchment, that has been written upon several times, often with remnants of erased writing still visible." Palimpsests (originally published in France in 1982), one of Gerard Genette's most important works, examines the manifold relationships a text may have with prior texts. Genette describes the multiple ways a later text asks readers to read or remember an earlier one. In this regard, he treats the history and nature of parody, antinovels, pastiches, caricatures, commentary, allusion, imitations, and other textual relations."--BOOK JACKET
Mimologics = Mimologiques : voyage en Cratylie by Gérard Genette ( Book )
10 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Do words--their sounds and shapes, their lengths and patterns--imitate the world? Mimology says they do. First argued in Plato's Cratylus more than two thousand years ago, mimology has left an important mark in virtually every major art and artistic theory thereafter. Mimology is the basis of language sciences and incites occasional hilarity. Genette treats matters as basic and staid as the alphabet and as reverberating as the letter R in ur-linguistics. Mimologics bridges mainstream literary history and Genette's expertise in critical method by undertaking an intensive study of the most vexed of literary problems: language as a representation of reality. --From publisher's description
