5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Book For Both Academics And Amateurs, 3 July 2006
This review is from: Narrative Discourse: An Essay in Method (Cornell Paperbacks) (Paperback)
This book was used by me in a university essay that looked at literary theory. It was a pleasure to have such a book to read, unlike many academic books Gerard Genette has made this book readable, understandable without compromising the intelligence of the thoughts. This and a proper translator (who worked with Genette in translating it) made an excellent resource that changed the way I wrote essays (no more using difficult words when a simple one would do).

His discussion of the constructiion of narratives is enlightening to say the least, he also explores the concept of digesis which is hard to find in any other book or article of this age.

Buy this and read it occainsonally and you may find yourself thinking things that you never thought before.
