"Gender and Narrative is a collection of twenty-two essays which sets out to explore the limits of narrative. No longer identified only with prose narration, or with telling, narrative today has infilterated other genres in a marked way.Moving beyond plot and story, it has come to represent a complex web of meaning produced through multiple strategies. Narrative today has not only a text, but a sub-text and a hypertext as well. In the age of computers, the selectivity and control of the reader allow him to appropriate the authorial position. Where then does the narrator locate himself? Time, space, structure and gender are only some of the categories which define narrative. Privileging gender amongst these, the contributors have explored poetry and drama, short stories and fables written both by men and women, diasporic and stay-at-home, traditional and radical and have unfolded their meaning in myriad different ways. The subjects range from theoretical underpinnings to studies of individual texts, from writers of the 1930s to the present day contemporary writers. The work presents an interesting and insightful dialogue on gender and narrative."
