Narrative Sequence in Contemporary Narratology

Baroni R. & F. Revaz (dir.) (2016), Narrative Sequence in Contemporary Narratology, Columbus, Ohio State University Press, coll. "Theory and Interpretation of Narrative". 226 p., LCCN 2015036743, ISBN 9780814212967. Since Aristotle, there has been an assumption that narrative is a representation of actions or sequences of events, that this representation aims to elicit emotions, and that well-formed narratives constitute a whole, with a beginning, a middle, and an end. The nature, role, and relative importance of constituent notions like “sequence of events” and “plot” have been discussed repeatedly and, as a result, have become rather slippery. While recent developments in contemporary narrative theory, such as unnatural, transmedial, cognitive, and functionalist narratology, shed new light on these notions, Narrative Sequence in Contemporary Narratology goes beyond specific approaches to narrative, illuminating sequence and plot in all the diversity of their manifestations, forms, and functions. This volume, edited by Raphaël Baroni and Françoise Revaz, includes contributions from some of the most influential scholars in narrative studies: Alain Boillat, Peter Hühn, Emma Kafalenos, Franco Passalacqua, James Phelan, Federico Pianzola, John Pier, Gerald Prince, Brian Richardson, Marie-Laure Ryan, Eyal Segal, and Michael Toolan. Essays range in focus from musical narrativity and rhetorical narrative theory to comic strips and re-examinations of classical and postclassical narratology. All of the essays contribute fresh understandings of foundational concepts in the field of narratology. Link to the editor: https://ohiostatepress.org/index.htm?books/book%20pages/baroni_revaz_narrative.html e-mail of the authors: raphael.baroni@unil.ch; francoise.revaz@unifr.ch “Narrative Sequence in Contemporary Narratology coheres very strongly as a series of explorations
of current research from various perspectives on what narrative theory can tell us about sequence— mostly sequence of discourse, though occasionally sequence of story. People who do narrative theory and who teach narrative theory will want to read this book.” —David Richter, CUNY Graduate School

London Theater Review: Ralph Fiennes in ‘Man and Superman’

London Theater Review: Ralph Fiennes in ‘Man and Superman’ | literature | Scoop.it
What a piece of work is “Man and Superman”? Hard work, to be frank. George Bernard Shaw’s experimental juggernaut -- deemed unstageable in 1903 -- makes for three and a half hours of tangled philosophy: a blow-away light comedy weighed down by footnotes.
