DESCRIPTION

How much of a tale is in the telling? This unit introduces concepts, terms and skills used in the analysis of literary narrative, and applies them to texts drawn from a wide range of genres, periods and nations. The unit will consider key topics in narrative analysis, such as: narrative voice and point of view; the relationship between author, narrator and reader; narrative time; narrative and genre; the unreliable narrator; adaptation of literary narratives to film; the ways literary texts open and close; narrative poetry; and narrative theory. Depending on staff expertise, the unit may include a creative-writing component, designed to give students practical experience of the opportunities and limits of different ways of telling tales.
