||The course will examine a range of English prose and narrative forms. It will examine issues including: the rise of the novel and narrative history; distinctions between story and discourse; realism; narrators and narrative 'frames'; free indirect style and other means of transcribing consciousness; irony and tone; temporality, structure and form; genre; fictionality and metafiction. The implications of such issues for primary critical analysis will be demonstrated and explored.
