“What Is Narratology?” sees itself as contributing to the intensive international discussion and controversy on the structure and function of narrative theory. The 14 papers in the volume advance proposals for determining the object of narratology, modelling its concepts and characterising its status within cultural studies.
Tom Kindt is a researcher in the Narratology Research Group at the University of Hamburg. Hans-Harald Müller is Professor of Modern German Literature at the University of Hamburg.
"The series is a significant contribution to the flourishing scholarship in the ares of narrative studies. As one would expect with de Gruyter, the volumes are handsome, the paper quality, typeface, and layout pleasant and reader-friendly, even though with the first volume, the editorial and production process seems to have included minor snags. [...] The volume provides a noteworthy cross-section of current work in narratology as well as a selection of questions worth pursuing."Sabine Gross in: Monatshefte 1/2008
