   schema:description "From the idea that the names of characters offer a more immediate and perhaps even a more intimate understanding of their souls than we might glean from their words and deeds has grown the broad field of inquiry known as literary onomastics. Stump argues that there is another approach to the literary proper name, one that concentrates not on the meaning of names but on the meaning of the use of those names - the ways in which the characters and narrator of a novel address or refer to others. By exploring these forces and their evocation, Stump reveals the complexity of both the act of naming and the novels of Queneau."@en ;
