Editorial Reviews


“The volume coheres well as a collection on aesthetics. . . . Genette’s structuralism will not appeal to all, but his fastidious approach to typological classification yields fascinating and thought-provoking results. It is supported, as always, by a broad erudition which draws on French literature in depth, and the translation by Dorrit Cohn preserves not only the authority and clarity of its delivery, but also its modesty and humour.”—David Coughlan, Modern Language Review
(Modern Language Review 2006-08-31)

Dorrit Cohn is a professor emerita of German and comparative literature at Harvard University and is considered one of the main contributors to modern poetics. She is the author of The Distinction of Fiction and Transparent Minds: Narrative Modes for Presenting Consciousness in Fiction.
