About this title


"...this is one of the few books on narrative worth reading and rereading, a study that will make - or should make - a difference in the way we read narrative." - "Nineteenth Century Fiction". "This is a remarkable book: original, clear-sighted, and luminously focused on a subject that has never been explored nearly so systematically or intensively...It will join the small canon of books written in English that must stand on the shelves of anyone working with problems of fictional theory and narrative technique." - Dorrit Cohn, Harvard University. In the past decade, Meir Sternberg has come to be recognized as one of the most exciting minds working in the areas of literary and biblical literary criticism. His "Poetics of Biblical Narrative" is one of the major books of the past decade. "Expositional Modes and Temporal Ordering in Fiction", long out of print, is now available in a paperback edition, providing another window into the mind of this exciting scholar. In it, Sternberg brings his powerful intellect to bear on a variety of ancient and modern masterpieces - Homer's "Odyssey", the Bible, Fielding, Trollope, Balzac, Jane Austen, Henry James, and Faulkner, among others. He is interested in such questions as the strategy the storyteller uses to exploit the temporal potentialities in art, and how the ordering of information relates to other aspects of fiction, such as point of view, spatial structure, verbal patterning, and generic tone.

About the Author:
