Summary
  • "This cutting-edge work of narrative theory examines how "metalepsis"--The transgression of the boundaries between narrative levels - has been used to construct the post-modern narrative subject. Concentrating on the writings of Samuel Beckett, Christine Brooke-Rose, and Angela Carter, Malina both interprets the narrative strategies of these authors and offers a new theoretical tool - a deconstructive approach to narratological categories that allows readers to focus on process rather than structures
  • This volume abstracts a model of metaleptic subject construction that has significant implications for narrative theory: rather than viewing narrative as static product, the deconstructive narratology it launches would accommodate narrative's bidirectional or cyclical dynamics and elaborate the "energetics" of the narrative process."--Jacket
