How do literary critics distinguish between ‘story’ and ‘plot’, between a symbol and an image, or between ‘tone’ and ‘mood’? How do we define ‘realism’, ‘modernism’, and ‘postmodernism’? What do narrative theorists mean by ‘frequency’ and ‘distance’? Studying the Novel provides answers to these questions and many others in a way that is readable and entertaining without being simplistic. This is the revised and updated sixth edition of Jeremy Hawthorn’s standard introduction to the novel, first published in 1985. Widely acclaimed for its erudition and accessibility, Studying the Novel is the essential guide to the concepts and approaches central to understanding the novel. It is a must-read for students of literature from first year undergraduate to Masters level and it will provide an invaluable primer for those in reading groups wishing to take their appreciation of the novel to new levels. The sixth edition has been updated to include discussion of new developments in narrative theory, especially those associated with ‘rhetorical narratologists’ such as James Phelan. It offers an expanded treatment of more recent fiction and of the short story and the novella, and it considers the problematic area of fictional and semi-fictional works based on real events such as the Nazi holocaust.

Descrizione libro Bloomsbury Publishing PLC. Paperback. Condizione libro: new. BRAND NEW, Studying the Novel (6th Revised edition), Jeremy Hawthorn, Studying the Novel is a best-selling introductory guide to the novel, short story and novella covering all the essential concepts and approaches for students of English, either on short courses or at degree level. It is widely-acclaimed for its erudite yet accessible style and judicious selection of literary extracts. The book begins with an introduction to the history and structure of the novel and then moves on to define the novel's essential components. The history and development of the novel is examined and concludes with a discussion of its continued relevancy today. Separate chapters cover the short story and the novella in order to give adequate coverage to these popular forms. The theoretical approaches of 'realism', 'modernism' and 'postmodernism' are outlined with reference to popular works to demonstrate how theory can be applied. Cyberfiction and interactive/collaborative fiction are explored followed by a chapter on analysing fiction - here the standard components of the novel are covered: narrative technique; character; plot; structure; setting; theme; symbol and image and speech and dialogue. Critical approaches and screen adaptations are also looked at. Practical advice is included throughout but one chapter entirely is devoted to how to take notes, what to note, using critics, using the internet and how to tackle essays and exams effectively. New to this edition is the inclusion of more contemporary fiction, such as Jeanette Winterson. Semi-fictional/factional work, such as holocaust writing is analysed and new developments in narrative theory have been added. A timeline of novels offers an at-a-glance overview of the historical development of literature. Codice libro della libreria B9780340985137
