Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This workshop will answer a great variety of questions about the theory and analysis of narrative that students (probably) have never asked or dared to ask. We will cover a wide range of aspects, from such abstract concepts as narrativity or metatextuality to very practical questions of how narratives begin or end, how novels or short stories are mediated, how a reader can recognize an unreliable narrator or how suspense is created. We will always explore these problems in the process of analysing texts.

Assessment and permitted materials

Regular attendance, oral presentation, active participation in class discussions, final essay

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
