Summary
In this first nontechnical description of the principles and procedures of narrative criticism, the author distinguishes literary criticism from various modes of historical criticism - source, form, and redaction - and also delineates several types of literary criticism - structuralist, rhetorical, reader-response, and narrative. He then describes, analyzes, and illustrates the categories that narrative criticism employs, such as implied author and reader, narrator, character, events, settings. - Cover
