But it should also interest anyone who has read Proust. I have only yet read the Introduction and First chapter but have learned of three foreign trips the narrator in In Search made to foreign countries Holland, Germany, Switzerland that are only alluded to in the text.

There was a section of "microanalysis" where the author took first a brief passage from Jean Santeuil then a longer passage from Sodom and Gommorah , divides each passage into the different periods of time referenced 7 and 12 respectively and shows how Proust seamlessly weaves together the narrative present now with various points in the past once without the reader even being aware of what a dazzling display of narrative brilliance lies within what appears to be just another "wordy" Proustian passage.

Genette shows how each of these beginnings relate to insomnia or involuntary memory. If such issues interest you this book is worth investigating. I do not find it dry, but it does require time to pause and consider terminology, differences sometimes subtle in terms and categories, and how examples relate to theory. Not since my initial infatuation with it. Two main style things: Turns of phrase -- he keeps it interesting and even informal in places.

Narrative Discourse: An Essay In Method – Paperback

Narrative Discourse: An Essay in Method. In an effort to understand narrative syntax as such, Genette breaks his analysis into five components: order, frequency, duration, voice, and mode. In his discussion of order, Genette analyzes the common anachronistic quality of order in narratives, whereby narrative events are rarely accounted for in a truly linear fashion. For Genette, frequency is the separation between an event and its narration. There are four types of frequency: singular an event can occur once and be narrated once , iterative an event can occur [x] times and be narrated once , repetitive an event can occur once and be narrated [x] times , and multiple an event can occur [x] times and be narrated [x] times.

Studying the possible relationships between the time of story or plot and the time of the narrative, he determines that they may be classified in terms of order events occur in one order but are narrated in anotherpace or duration the narra- tive devotes considerable space to a momentary experience and then leaps over or swiftly summarizes a number of yearsand frequency the narrative may repeatedly recount an event that happened only once or may recount once what happened fre- quently. Of course, numerical relationships allow us to recognize analepses and pro- 11 Here begin the problems and disgraces of terminology. To return to our previous example, if the homodiegetic narrator from the main story line intervenes in the metadiegetic story of Marguerite Bourgeois, this would be a case of metalepsis.
