Theorie und Typologie narrativer Unzuverlässigkeit am Beispiel englischsprachiger Erzählliteratur
[Theory and Typology of Narrative Unreliability in English Fiction]
Aims and Scope
Narratology has hitherto primarily considered unreliable narratives with homodiegetic narrators. This work widens the scope of narrative unreliability to encompass the various forms of unreliable narration as well as unreliable focalisation. In addition to providing a typology, this work develops descriptive and explanatory models which are illustrated on the basis of an analysis of English fiction.
