Synopsis: Paratexts are those liminal devices and conventions, both within and outside the book, that mediate between book, author and reader: titles, forewords and publishers' jacket copy form part of a book's private and public history. In this first English translation of Paratexts, Gérard Genette offers a global view of these liminal mediations and their relation to the reading public. With precision, clarity and through wide reference, he shows how paratexts interact with general questions of literature as a cultural institution. Richard Macksey's foreword situates Genette in contemporary literary theory.

Book Description: Paratexts are the liminal devices and conventions, that mediate between book, author and reader--e.g. titles, forewords, publishers' jacket copy, etc. This first English translation offers a global view of liminal mediations and their relation to the reading public.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 1997. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 216 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Paratexts are those liminal devices and conventions, both within and outside the book, that form part of the complex mediation between book, author, publisher and reader: titles, forewords, epigraphs and publishers jacket copy are part of a book s private and public history. In this first English translation of Paratexts, Gerard Genette shows how the special pragmatic status of paratextual declaration requires a carefully calibrated analysis of their illocutionary force. With clarity, precision and an extraordinary range of reference, Paratexts constitutes an encyclopedic survey of the customs and institutions as revealed in the borderlands of the text. Genette presents a global view of these liminal mediations and the logic of their relation to the reading public by studying each element as a literary function. Richard Macksey s foreword describes how the poetics of paratexts interact with more general questions of literature as a cultural institution, and situates Gennet s work in contemporary literary theory.
