Narrative in fiction and film : an introduction
Bok av Jakob Lothe
Narrative in Fiction and Film gives a clear presentation of key concepts of narrative theory such as author, narrator, and reader. The main focus of the book is on narrative fiction (short stories and novels), yet the film aspect is brought into each chapter. The first part of the book introduces the key concepts of narrative theory and the second part of the book illustrates and tests the theories by analysing five texts: the parable of the sower in St. Mark's Gospel, Franz Kafka's The Trial, James Joyce's The Dead, Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, and Virginia Woolf's To the Lighthouse, and the film version of these texts.
