Figures of literary discourse by Gérard Genette( Book )

143 editions published between 1966 and 2005 in 6 languages and held by 1,817 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Narrative discourse : an essay in method by Gérard Genette( Book )

73 editions published between 1979 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 1,770 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
Palimpsestes : la littérature au second degré by Gérard Genette( Book )

79 editions published between 1982 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,170 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
Paratexts : thresholds of interpretation by Gérard Genette( Book )

83 editions published between 1977 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 1,168 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

The work of art by Gérard Genette( Book )

65 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 870 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bibliografie : p. 289-294. - Met reg. Premier volume d'une ensemble consacré au statut et aux fonctions des oeuvres d'art. Celui-ci porte sur les modes d'existence des oeuvres. Les oeuvres d'art revêtent deux modes d'existence, qui sont l'immanence et la transcendance. L'immanence est définie par le type d'objet en lequel l'oeuvre consiste, la transcendance est définie par les diverses manières dont une oeuvre déborde son immanence
Mimologics = Mimologiques : voyage en Cratylie by Gérard Genette( Book )

34 editions published between 1976 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 864 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
The architext : an introduction by Gérard Genette( Book )

41 editions published between 1978 and 2009 in 7 languages and held by 795 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this essential theoretical essay, Gerard Genette asserts that the object of poetics is not the text, but the architext--the transcendent categories (literary genres, modes of enunciation, and types of discourse, among others) to which each individual text belongs. In seeking to link these categories in a system embracing the entire field of literature, Western poetics has divided literature into three kinds: dramatic, epic, and lyric. This division, generally accepted since the eighteenth century, has been wrongly attributed to Aristotle with great detriment to the development of poetics. Here Genette disassembles this burdensome triad by retracing its gradual construction and distinguishes among the architextual categories that this division has long obscured. In so doing, Genette lays a firm foundation for future theorists of literary forms

Discours du récit by Gérard Genette( Book )

29 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Genettes "Diskurs der Erzählung" ist die theoretisch anspruchsvollste, ausgewogenste und kohärenteste, - zugleich aber auch eine hochgradig "praktikable" Theorie der literarischen Erzählung und insofern ein "Studienbuch" im besten Sinn des Wortes. Dies Werk, schreibt Jonathan Culler, "ist unschätzbar, weil es den dringenden Bedarf einer systematischen Theorie der Erzählung befriedigt. Als bislang gründlichster Versuch, die Grundlagen und Techniken des literarischen Erzählens zu analysieren, zu benennen und zu veranschaulichen, wird es allen unverzichtbar werden, die sich mit erzählender Literatur auseinandersetzen. Sie werden hier nicht nur Begriffe für vieles finden, was sie bei der Romanlektüre bemerkt haben; ihre Aufmerksamkeit wird vielmehr auf Strukturen und Techniken der Fiktion gelenkt, die sie vorher nicht wahrgenommen oder deren Bedeutung sie nicht erkannt haben
Métalepse : de la figure à la fiction by Gérard Genette( Book )

16 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in French and Spanish and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La rhétorique classique définissait la métalepse comme la désignation figurée (métonymique) d'un effet par sa cause, ou vice versa , et plus spécifiquement la métalepse "de l'auteur" comme une figure par laquelle on attribue au poète le pouvoir d'entrer en personne dans l'univers d'une fiction dont, comme auteur, il est bien la "cause", comme lorsqu'on dit que Virgile "fait mourir Didon" au IVème Livre de l'Énéide , en feignant de croire qu'il a lui-même allumé le bûcher de la reine de Carthage. De ce qui n'était guère qu'une façon de parler, la narratologie moderne s'est autorisée, depuis quelques années, pour explorer sous ce terme les diverses façons dont le récit de fiction peut enjamber ses propres seuils, internes ou externes : entre l'acte narratif et le récit qu'il produit, entre celui-ci et les récits seconds qu'il enchâsse, et ainsi de suite et dans tous les sens. Dans Figures III et Nouveau Discours du récit , Gérard Genette avait rapidement évoqué ces divers types de pratiques transgressives. Il leur consacre ici une étude plus frontale et plus approfondie, qu'il étend maintenant au champ beaucoup plus vaste des divers arts "représentatifs" , comme la peinture, le théâtre, le cinéma, la télévision... Il montre comment les figures sculptées d'un bouclier peuvent s'animer et prendre la parole, comment un tableau peut quitter son cadre, un personnage sortir de la scène ou traverser l'écran, comment un romancier au travail peut voir son bureau envahi par les "formes vaporeuses" de ses héros, et comment il peut lui-même encombrer, tel Gulliver à Lilliput, tout le vaste paysage de son roman. D'Homère à Giono, de Sterne à Calvino, de Pirandello à Woody Allen, les artistes ont rarement résisté à cette tentation de mettre en scène et en jeu les moyens et les effets de leur représentation du monde, et d'entraîner leurs propres lecteurs et spectateurs dans le v
