DescriptionReviewsContentsAuthors

Literary and Linguistic Approaches to Feminist Narratology offers a critical new approach to analyzing the relationships between gender and narrative. Amidst the diversification of postclassical narratology and of gender studies there have been calls for integration across disciplinary fields. This book responds to such a call and for the first time brings together a sustained examination of feminist narratology that combines literary and linguistic perspectives. It presents a series of original studies that include literary texts from different historical periods and expressive traditions, set alongside narratives from the media, emergent forms of hypertext and the storytelling of children. Ruth Page offers a timely re-evaluation of work that has flourished since the inception of feminist narratology in the mid-1980s, challenging its earlier assumptions in the light of more recent post-modern feminist theories. This approach re-energizes and extends the scope of feminist narratology, offering new directions for this important field of narrative theory.

Reviews


'...this book is an excellent contribution to the debate about post-modern feminims and also provides insightful narrative analyses.' - Sara Mills, Journal of Literary Semantics
 
'All in all, Page's book is a rich source of theory and practice regarding feminist narratology. It is very well written and easy to read. Literary and Linguistic Approaches to Feminist Narratology will be extremely useful as a reliable source of information for students and scholars in the field of language and gender, besides being of interest for anyone who is curious about narratives. We are presented here with an invaluable publication, and we can but congratulate Page for having undertaken such a task and carried it out with such expertise.' - Hilal Erkazanci, Discourse& Communication
