This study re-examines narrative theory and outlines the consequences for narratology of deconstructive, poststructuralist and more recent theory. Andrew Gibson assesses the extent to which narrative theory might be rethought in their light, drawing on the work of Derrida, Deleuze, Lyotard and Foucault. Consistently relating his theoretical investigations to critical practice, Gibson makes telling and perceptive analyses of a variety of twentieth-centry texts including work by Joyce, Fielding, Beckett, Lawrence, Woolf, R L Stevenson, Kundera, Tarkovsky and others. This is an important contribution to contemporary work on narrative.
