Approaches to literary narrative analysis. Explores narrative theory as a research method for studying the fundamental categories of literary narrative--such as the narrator, character, plot, closure, and frames, as well as the nature of fictionality and the role of the reader--and for interpreting their deployment in individual literary works. We will use this method to examine particularly unusual and even radical fiction, so we can understand the meaning-making work accomplished by narrative form.
