  • The Specter of Infanticide in Herman Melville’s Billy Budd, Sailor
    • Abstract: Imagine two people condemned to death by hanging. Both are orphans whose child-like beauty makes it difficult for observers to accept their guilt. Each is also the victim of circumstance, committing out of desperation crimes originating in an instinct for self-defense. While the young woman, seduced and jilted by a social superior, has abandoned her newborn to the elements in a fit of suicidal hysteria, the young man has simply struck, once, a military superior who knowingly made false accusations of mutiny against him. Neither has the solace of death and burial near home; both die at sea. These two unfortunates are George Eliot’s Hetty Sorrel and Herman Melville’s Billy Budd—the characters at the center of Adam ...

  • Collapsing the Absolute: Early Celan and the Post-Romantic Strangeness
    • Abstract: We were dead and were able to breathe.At the very beginning of his philosophical fragments collected under the title Pollen (Blütenstaub, 1798), the German poet Novalis summarizes the Romantic yearning for the absolute: “we seek the absolute [das Unbedingte] everywhere and only ever find things [Dinge]” (2008: 359). Out of a burning desire to both know (not only to think) and express the absolute, the German Romantics, like Immanuel Kant who was tempted by such knowing and G. W. F. Hegel who went to dialecticize it, were particularly stimulated and troubled by the fertile gap between the unconditioned and conditioned, intellectual intuition and sensuous perception, I and non-I, Spirit and the Thing. As Iain ... Read More

  • Clarice Lispector on Jewishness after the Shoah: A Reading of
           “Perdoando Deus”
    • Abstract: Clarice Lispector’s fame has long since moved beyond the Lusophone canon to secure her a place in the pantheon of world literature. Concomitant with translations of her work into English and her subsequent rise to worldwide canonical status, secondary literature has proliferated, which has even led one critic to speak of a “Lispector Industry” (Williams 1). As a sub-genre of this so-called industry, numerous studies scrutinize the Brazilian writer’s oeuvre for traces of Jewishness, Judaism, and/or the Shoah.1 Some of these works have offered convincing arguments for specific cases, but the issue calls for more attention. This article presents a reading of Lispector’s short story “Perdoando Deus” (“Forgiving God,” ... Read More

  • Two Decades after the Publication of Monika Fludernik’s Towards a
           ‘Natural’ Narratology: Introduction to the Forum
    • Abstract: When she published Towards a ‘Natural’ Narratology in 1996, Monika Fludernik surmised that the book would remain under discussion for maybe ten years. Audacious for prioritizing topics and concepts that narratologists for well-nigh three decades had held to be taboo, it was thought that Fludernik’s book had the potential of stirring up controversies that would one day fizzle out, only to be supplanted by new trends and developments.Today we know that this prognosis was not fulfilled. Indeed, the positions staked out in the book, revolutionary for some and contestable for others, have proved over time to have brought about something of a paradigm shift in the field of narratology. Fludernik’s book soon came to be ... Read More

  • Naturalization in “Natural” Narratology
    • Abstract: Monika Fludernik’s Towards a ‘Natural’ Narratology is a major work of narratological theory and analysis that aims to bring about a paradigm shift in narratology. Initially, the high price of the hardbound book hampered its impact, but its path-breaking qualities came in due time to be widely acknowledged. The book builds on William Labov’s work on so-called natural narrative and on cognitive studies of narrative, and it also enlarges the set of literary narratives with which narratology deals, investigating the historical evolution of narrative forms and strategies from the medieval verse epic and saints’ lives to the indeterminably plotless novels of the late twentieth century. She thus attempts to deal with as ... Read More

  • Against Nature
    • Abstract: Nature makes me nervous. Insofar as we are theorists, it should make us all nervous, since “[t]he main thrust of recent theory . . . has been the critique of whatever is taken as natural” (Culler 1992: 207). Evidently there was a time when it made Monika Fludernik nervous enough that she placed the word “natural” between scare quotes in the very title of her groundbreaking book, Towards a ‘Natural’ Narratology, published just over twenty years ago. Fludernik keeps “nature” quarantined in her title and throughout the better part of her book — prudently so, since “nature” is such an ideologically charged concept. But it is hard to keep nature in its place once it has gotten a toehold in an argument, as this article ... Read More

  • Two Conceptions of Experientiality and Narrativity: Functions, Advantages,
           and Disadvantages
    • Abstract: Monika Fludernik’s Towards a ‘Natural’ Narratology (1996) is ground-breaking in three interrelated respects: the integrated study of non-literary and literary narrative, the cognitive study of narrative, and the historical study of narrative. This paper will focus on two key concepts in the book: “experientiality” and “narrativity.”Two different conceptions of experientiality are laid out by Fludernik, one broader and the other more nuanced. The broader conception figures prominently not only in Towards a ‘Natural’ Narratology, but also in Fludernik’s later essay, “Natural Narratology and Cognitive Parameters” (2003), which offers a neat summary that I shall draw on in my discussion of the book. According to the ... Read More

  • Toward the Non-Natural: Diachronicity and the Trained Reader in
           Fludernik’s Natural Narratology
    • Abstract: If a narratological book such as Monika Fludernik’s Towards a ‘Natural’ Narratology claims to move “beyond formal narratology into the realm of pragmatics, reception theory and constructivism” (xi), what kind of outcome can we expect' If the reader is familiar with the narratological modus operandi, she will not be expecting any kind of empirical data about actual readers. As Marie-Laure Ryan notes (474, 476), a cognitive narratologist will willingly undergo a considerable theoretical and methodological ordeal just to avoid having to deal with real readers. I find this to be a remarkable confession coming from one of the eminent pioneers of cognitive narratology. This does not need to be a problem, however. In ... Read More

  • More than Minds: Experience, Narrative, and Plot
    • Abstract: The concept of experience did not fare well during most of the second half of the 20th century. Poststructuralists condemned experience as belonging to metaphysics; the advocates of Critical Theory scented ideology behind it; and analytical philosophers were too busy concocting impervious definitions to care much about experience.1 By the end of the century, however, the scene had changed significantly, and the idea of experience was fully rehabilitated in academic research. Together with such ideas as presence or materiality, experience was marshaled to overcome the linguistic turn (e.g. Pickering 1997; Mersch 2002; Gumbrecht 2004; Ankersmit 2005; Runia 2006). Perhaps most importantly, experience caters to the ... Read More

  • The Curse of Realism: Cognitive Narratology and the Historical Dimension
    • Abstract: Few narratologists have argued as consistently for the need to take into account the historical development in narrative studies as has Monika Fludernik. Even fewer have pursued the diachronic dimension with the expertise that we find on display in Towards a ‘Natural’ Narratology (1996). Fludernik develops a sustained argument about historical developments from her cognitive model, tracing how literary narrative through the centuries progressively gets closer to matching the “schemata” of our cognitive processes. What we read on the page becomes more and more easily integrated into these schemata as literary style approaches what we call “realism.” Fludernik draws here on Jonathan Culler’s notion of ...

  • Posthuman Narration as a Test Bed for Experientiality: The Case of Kurt
           Vonnegut’s Galápagos
    • Abstract: In Jared Diamond’s The Third Chimpanzee, a widely acclaimed popular science book on the evolution of Homo sapiens, the origin of culture in our species is conceptualized as a “great leap forward” (180–81). The metaphor of the leap captures a moment, roughly 60,000 years ago, when the sluggish pace of biological evolution gave way to the flurry of cultural innovation. This leap is both temporal and epistemological. Time seems to shift gears: from the slow, tentative tinkering of natural selection, whose changes involve timescales in the order of hundreds of thousands of years, we witness the almost instantaneous rise and fall of technologies and civilizations. But the leap is also epistemological, since it points to ... Read More

  • Experience, Affect, and Literary Lists
    • Abstract: Lists and list-making are topics toward which people have diverse sentiments. There are those who rely on their to-do lists and love making them, deriving pleasure from crossing items out. There are others who enjoy reading so-called listicles—that is, articles presented as lists—and who check their Twitter feed regularly, engaging closely with its list-form. Yet others immediately recall literary lists such as the catalogue of ships in the Iliad or Vladimir Nabokov’s class list in Lolita and who admit that they have skipped these lists entirely. W. H. Auden claimed ironically that the enjoyment of “long lists of proper names” (47) is characteristic of a good literary critic and thus a task that only reflects a ... Read More

  • Towards a ‘Natural’ Narratology Twenty Years After
    • Abstract: First of all, I would like to thank John Pier and Eva von Contzen for having put together the two panels at the ISSN conference in Amsterdam in 2016, contributions to which are now published in this forum of Partial Answers. I am immensely grateful to all contributors for having engaged with Towards a ‘Natural’ Narratology (TNN) and with the notion of experientiality (in the second panel), which is one of the key aspects of the theory developed in TNN.The essays in this forum can be divided into two groups displaying different tendencies in their reactions to TNN and experientiality. On the one hand, the articles lay out a variety of extensions and innovative appropriations of my work. On the other hand, they focus ... Read More

  • The Work of Difference: Modernism, Romanticism, and the Production of
           Literary Form by Audrey Wasser (review)
    • Abstract: Not every young scholar would venture to devote her first book to developing an entirely different theory of literature. Audrey Wasser is certainly not like every young scholar. In The Work of Difference, Wasser articulates an account of literary difference as a concept opposed to literary “newness,” the latter being the product of a “still regnant romanticism” (93) which “continues to hold sway over the way we read” (1). Wasser claims that we demand of works that they be new when we expect them to be internally consistent and autonomous on a formal level or to respond to, but negate, codified structures of possible linguistic expression. But such a demand overshadows the specific difference of what is new. ... Read More

  • Literature as Dialogue: Invitations Offered and Negotiated ed. by Roger D.
           Sell (review)
    • Abstract: The term “dialogue,” which etymologically means a “literary work consisting of a conversation between two or more persons,” was extended around 1400 to simply denote a “conversation” (Online Etymology Dictionary). In literary studies, the term has undergone further metaphorical extensions and is used, for example, to refer to the ways in which (A) authors “communicate” with their readers, (B) readers engage with literary texts, or (C) the texts themselves relate to other texts. In the present volume, Roger D. Sell conceptualizes “literature as dialogue” as a form of communication between authors and readers, whereby authors offer “invitations” to readers and readers accept or, rather, “negotiate” them: “At its ...
