summary The Rhetoric of Fiction

review ☆ The Rhetoric of Fiction Te texts and its concepts and terms such as the implied author the postulated reader and the unreliable narrator have become part of the standard critical lexiconFor this new edition Wayne C Booth has written an extensive Afterword in which he clarifies misunderstandings corrects what he now views as errors and set. Insofar as the title of Booth s book is The Rhetoric of Fiction and that rhetoric is both the carriage of argument over words and the lack thereof it is completely appropriate that Booth s book ends with him advancing the argument that his book has been about morality in fiction and acknowledging that most modern his word fiction is modern precisely in the lack of such moralityBooth s survey of fictional techniue is both deep and broad and is a fantastic spur to read some and this is perhaps a bizarre thing to say given their great fame but still nonetheless true I feel often overlooked great writers Fielding Sterne James and Richardson his most freuent exemplars Indeed in some places this book is simply a critiue of Percy Lubbock s second hand theories borrowed from James himself accomplished rather

review ☆ The Rhetoric of Fiction The first edition of The Rhetoric of Fiction transformed the criticism of fiction and soon became a classic in the field One of the most widely used texts in fiction courses it is a standard reference point in advanced discussions of how fictional form works how authors make novels accessible and how readers recrea.

review ☆ The Rhetoric of Fiction S forth his own recent thinking about the rhetoric of fiction The other new feature is a Supplementary Bibliography prepared by James Phelan in consultation with the author which lists the important critical works of the past twenty years two decades that Booth describes as the richest in the history of the subject. I picked up and read Rhetoric from the perspective of an author wannabe so my copy is now scored with underlines and margin notes that will enable me to keep my interpretations and its key points straight when I browse through it later for reference It goes beyond grammersyntax advice beyond plotcharactertheme construction to explore what actually makes a good novel a good novel I m not taking away any hard and fast lessons Mr Booth largely dispenses with the possibility of such things but I have now been made witness to many enlightening examples It makes me interested in pursuing works I previously had no desire to read eg Tristram Shandy Tom Jones Madame Bovary possibly Ulysses and the works of Henry James and Graham Greene among a few others because I m better positioned to appreciate the telling
