A companion to narrative theory by James Phelan( Book )

32 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and Chinese and held by 841 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 35 original essays in A Companion to Narrative Theory constitute the best available introduction to this vital and contested field of humanistic enquiry. The essays represent all the major critical approaches to narrative - narratological, rhetorical, feminist, post-structuralist, historicist - and investigate and debate the relations among them. In addition, they stretch the boundaries of the field by considering narratives in different disciplines, such as law and medicine, and in a variety of media, including film, music, and painting."--Jacket
Before reading : narrative conventions and the politics of interpretation by Peter J Rabinowitz( Book )

22 editions published between 1987 and 1998 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: How does what we know shape the ways we read? Starting from the premise that any productive theory of narrative must take into account the presuppositions the reader brings to the text, Before Reading explores how our prior knowledge of literary conventions influences the processes of interpretation and evaluation
Understanding narrative( Book )

8 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Each of the ten essays is an example of what James Phelan and Peter J. Rabinowitz call "theorypractice": a self-reflexive inquiry that simultaneously interprets and investigates the grounds of interpretation. These essays, in other words, resist the easy and one-way application of fixed theoretical strategies to text. Instead, they call upon a variety of theoretical perspectives to inform their interpretative practice while deploying their interpretations to revise theory
Authorizing readers : resistance and respect in the teaching of literature by Peter J Rabinowitz( Book )

7 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Authorizing Readers: Resistance and Respect in the Teaching of Literature is a provocative conversation between co-authors that brings to life the symbiotic relationship between theory and practice. This unique collaboration between a literary critic/college professor (Peter J. Rabinowitz) and a high school English teacher/education professor (Michael W. Smith) provides readers with a rich discussion of a central paradox faced by literature teachers: Can teachers claim to have taught well if their students have not learned to recognize (and respect) the ways authors expect them to read? But at the same time, shouldn't students be taught the critical skills of resisting both what authors expect and what teachers see as the right reading? Though each of the authors has a somewhat different view, Rabinowitz and Smith show that what they call "authorial reading" is not only compatible with, but even essential to, progressive teaching and truly engaged readers. This book will be of interest to English educators and literature teachers (grades 7-12 and undergraduate) as well as professors and students of literary theory and research

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
