A dictionary of narratology by Gerald Prince( Book )

73 editions published between 1987 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 961 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"History, literature, religion, myth, film, psychology, theory, and daily conversation all rely heavily on narrative. Cutting across many disciplines, narratology describes and analyzes the language of narrative with its regularly recurring patterns, deeply established conventions for transmission, and interpretive codes, whether in novels, cartoons, or case studies." "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."--Jacket

Palimpsests : literature in the second degree by Gérard Genette( )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 239 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."--Jacket

Building blocks of Chinese historiography : a narratological analysis of "Shi ji" by Lei Yang( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Shi ji studies, scholars from both the East and West have predominantly taken one particular approach: the psychological reading of its author, Sima Qian. Since the author suffered penal castration when he was writing the Shi ji, this approach has been summarized as "the theory of conveying one's frustration." Many scholars, modern and pre-modern alike, have inferred the author's feelings and emotions from his biographical experiences and have interpreted the text accordingly. This narrow interpretation constrains our understanding by exclusively focusing on the author's personal pains and purposes. Such analysis thus commits the intentional fallacy, which mistakenly equates the author with the text, unjustifiably simplifying the complicated interpretive process. I explore the features of the text itself, shifting the focus of research from the author's intention to the effects produced by its narrative devices, which have determinative influence over the interpretive process but have long been overlooked. I explore the role of narrative as a medium in historical works, applying theories of narratology from the French Structualist Gérard Genette to analyze narratives in the Shi ji. By setting the text into this framework, I systematically examine the narrative sequences, such as anticipation and flashback, narrative duration and mood, and characterization. My investigation shows that these narrative devices produce literary effects, distinguishing Shi ji from both earlier and later histories, such as the Zuo zhuan and Han shu. Shi ji presents a highly complicated past by manipulating interrelations among historical events, regulating information, and emphasizing changes and their effects. It pays most attention to how the historical events happened, more than what happened and why, a significant issue has not been discussed in a context of Chinese historiography. My narratological approach provides an alternative perspective and explores new territory in Shi ji studies

Narrations d’un nouveau siècle : Romans et récits français (2001-2010) \ by Aurélie Adler( )

1 edition published in 2016 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En août 2011 s’est tenue à Cerisy-la-Salle une décade « Narrations d’un nouveau siècle : romans et récits français, 2001-2010 » dont ce livre constitue les actes. À quoi ressemble une littérature qui accorde la part belle au roman mais sans exclusive générique, dans la concurrence de récits empruntant à tous les genres et de multiples arts ? Une littérature française parce qu’écrite en langue française, mais travaillée de l’intérieur et renvoyée à sa propre étrangeté par les évolutions de cette langue et les porosités multiculturelles que suscitent aujourd’hui des échanges mondialisés ? L’ouvrage rassemble les points de vue d’universitaires européens, canadiens et américains. Il se veut un observatoire critique des évolutions en cours de la littérature et un laboratoire théorique ouvert à différentes approches permettant d’en mesurer les enjeux en temps réel
La littérature française du 20e siècle lue de l'étranger by Dominique Viart( )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

À l'heure où l'on s'inquiète de la place de la littérature française sur la scène internationale, cet ouvrage établit l'état actuel des recherches qui lui sont consacrées dans le monde. Il présente les enseignements, travaux et publications, et met en évidence les particularités observables selon la diversité des zones géographiques, linguistiques et culturelles. Après la domination successive des écoles formalistes et structurales, puis de celles issues de la French Theory et de la déconstruction, aucune méthode ne semble aujourd'hui s'imposer, et la recherche, désormais plus syncrétique, préfère croiser des approches de nature diverse. Quelques-uns des meilleurs spécialistes mondiaux montrent ainsi quels sont, depuis le basculement d'un siècle à l'autre, les écrivains et les esthétiques les plus étudiés, les méthodes critiques privilégiées et les relations qu'elles entretiennent avec les autres disciplines de la pensée
La giostra dei sentimenti by Wolfgang Asholt( )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La tela di fondo su cui si rappresenta la gamma dei sentimenti sembra mostrare che i territori dell’arte e quelli della letteratura implichino uno spazio di energie in continua tensione, sottoposto ad una trasformazione imprevedibile e ad un continuo scontro tra sentimenti e negazione dei sentimenti. I sentimenti, nella loro audace presenza, paiono diventati degli affidabili segnatempo, riconoscibili nella scrittura, anche attraverso le continue oscillazioni che si riscontrano nel posizionamento della materia artistica e letteraria, questa materia particolare, incompressibile, che sembra estendere la propria influenza nel campo dell’arte, restituendo all’arte la sua dimensione umana e agli uomini una più ampia e profonda sensibilità. I sentimenti, nella loro forma trascritta in arte, appaiono oramai per quel che sono: un’energia sotterranea che produce autenticità creativa e rende credibile la finzione e la giustifica, ne fa uno strumento di immedesimazione e, quindi, di una possibile liberazione. Testi di Wolfgang Asholt, Jeanne Benameur, Nicole Caligaris, Marc Dambre, Giusi Alessandra Falco, Sylvie Gouttebaron, Valeria Gramigna, Hélène Jaccomard, Marie Thérèse Jacquet, Isabelle Jarry, Alexis Jenni, Fred Le Chevalier, Bertrand Leclair, Matteo Majorano, Jochen Mecke, Marika Piva, Ida Porfido, Gerald Prince, Michael Sheringham, Maîté Snauwaert, Marinella Termite, Dominique Viart, Ornela Vorpsi. Matteo Majorano è professore di Letteratura francese presso l’Università di Bari. Di formazione classica, si interessa, a partire dal 1990, di letteratura del presente ed è tra i primi ad introdurre, in Italia, la disciplina dell’extrême contemporain. Per promuovere questi studi ha creato, nel 2001, la collana “Margini critici” e, dal 2012, con Gianfranco Rubino, dirige la collana “Ultracontemporanea”, osservatorio delle scritture attuali

Approaching the witness : narratives of trauma in Sub-Saharan Francophone African literature and film by George S MacLeod( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cathy Caruth and Shoshana Felman's pioneering work in trauma theory provided innovative critical frameworks for reading textual and filmic responses to mass violence. Yet trauma theory is rarely applied to African cultural production, despite the recent explosion of novels, memoir, and film from Sub-Saharan Francophone Africa grappling with civil war and genocide. In close analyses of child soldier novels, Rwandan genocide survivor memoirs, and Francophone African films, this dissertation effects such a theoretical rapprochement while simultaneously probing the limits of trauma theory's assumptions concerning speech, temporality, and political representation. The first chapter, entitled "Giving Voice to the Icon: The Child Witness to Violence in Francophone African Fiction," rereads Ivorian author Ahmadou Kourouma's child soldier novel Allah n'est pas obligé (2000) arguing that Kourouma creates a "language of trauma," which reveals how discourses of collective suffering risk limiting our understanding of violence's psychological impact on individuals. The second chapter, "Listening to the Limit: Reading Paratext in Francophone African Trauma Memoirs," redeploys Gérard Genette's formulation of the "paratext" to read Rwandan Tutsi survivor Esther Mujawayo's memoir SurVivantes (2011). I argue that the multiple introductions to SurVivantes function as a form of hospitality, inviting the reader to become a part of a virtual community of supportive listeners. The third chapter, "Hierarchies of Witnessing: Pan-African Celebrity and the Marginalization of Survivor Testimony," investigates why Tutsi survivor memoirs have received so little attention from scholars. Using Rwandan survivor Vénuste Kayimahe's 2001 memoir France-Rwanda: Les coulisses du génocide (2001) as a case study, I argue that the marginalization of Rwandan survivor testimonies bears troubling similarities to survivor's difficulties being heard in the real world. The fourth chapter, "African Trauma On (and Off) Screen: Temporality and Violence in Francophone African Cinema," argues that in leaving graphic scenes of subjective violence off-screen, African filmmakers actively bear witness to the insidious long-term effects of events such as the Rwandan genocide or the daily reality of occupation under radical jihadist groups in Northern Mali as seen Abderrahmane Sissako's 2014 film Timbuktu
