Narratology: The Form And Functioning Of Narrative (Janua Linguarum Series Maior)
In Narratology, Gerald Prince notes that narratology includes all narratives, even those that aren't great or literary or interesting (yes!), and that studying narratology "is to study one of the fundamental ways -- and a singularly human one at that -- in which we make sense. Ultimately, narratology can help us understand what human beings are" (164). Narrating (ch1) and Reading Narrative (ch4) are more pertinent for those interested in the structure/creation of narratives and their reception. Narrated (ch2), Narrative Grammar (ch3) and Narrativity (ch5) focus more on the content of narratives. Narrative Grammar is particularly technical in that respect.
