Front Cover
Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Company KG, 2005 - Literary Criticism - 259 pages
This study offers a fresh approach to the theory and practice of poetry criticism from a narratological perspective. Arguing that lyric poems share basic constituents with narrative fiction, the authors utilize the advanced techniques of narratology to invigorate the field of poetic theory and methodology while demonstrating the fruitfulness of this approach by detailed analyses of canonical English poems.
