'Abbott brilliantly zeroes in on the architecture of narrative with an exactness and bent for orderly exposition that utterly redeems his subject.' The Chronicle of Higher Education
'Anyone seeking a lucidly written guide to the study of narrative technique should turn immediately to H. Porter Abbott's Cambridge Introduction to Narrative.' Literature/Film Quarterly
'Written in an unfailingly lucid style that nonetheless refuses to 'dumb down' the major research questions facing analysts of stories, this book provides an ideal starting-point for readers seeking a synoptic overview of recent scholarship on narrative. More than just a primer for readers unfamiliar with previous research on stories, however, Abbott's book itself represents a significant contribution to the field of narrative studies.' David Herman, editor of The Cambridge Companion to Narrative
'Directness, accessibility, and coherence distinguish this brief but comprehensive study of narrative ... Most highly recommended.' Choice
'A lucid, practical, wide-ranging, and often original introduction to narrative, which will be extremely useful in undergraduate and graduate courses on literary theory and criticism. This is not a dry textbook, however; the reader is made aware of a real voice and of a fascination with the role of narrative across many areas of culture and beyond.' Derek Attridge
This thoroughly revised second edition of this widely used textbook takes recent developments in the field into account, and includes two new chapters. Organised to be used throughout a narrative studies course, it includes many textbook features, examples and suggestions for further reading.See all Product Description
