Narrative Negotiations : Information Structures in Literary Fiction

Décodage du Décodeur dans "Narrative Negotiations : Information Structures in Literary Fiction", essai de Kristin Veel, publié chez l'éditeur allemand Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht (Göttingen, février 2009).

" The central argument of the book is that contemporary fiction continues an established pattern in the culture of modernity by simultaneously addressing, resisting and revitalising narrative structures through the incorporation of other modes of organising information. Focussing on the novel genre allows for a rigorous, in-depth study of this issue, enabling the narrative implications of structures such as the database, the hyperlink and the computer game to be placed in a wider historical context. The book thus deals with Goethe’s Wilhelm Meisters Wanderjahre (1829), Robert Musil’s Der Mann ohne Eigenschaften (1930-42), and Arno Schmidt’s Zettels Traum (1970) as well as a number of texts from the last two decades in English, German, Scandinavian, and French by Jan Kjærstad, Thomas Hettche, Botho Strauß, Reinhard Jirgl, Svend Åge Madsen, Günter Grass, David Mitchell, and Guy Tournaye."
