Narrative Strategies and Meaning. Edition No. 1
VDM Publishing House, May 2010, Pages: 188
This book investigates the relationship between certain narrative strategies and meaning(s), and presents a narratological analysis of Golding's three novels. It primarily refers to the terminology offered by Genette and Rimmon-Kenan and, considering the mode of narration (voice) and the mode of focalization (mood), it unearths narrative elements in narrative fiction. This study argues that the implied author employs narrative agents and strategies of perspectivisation in order to affect, manipulate, determine or change the meaning(s), and that storytelling authority can be violated or balanced by perceiving monitor-ity. In The Inheritors, the implied author plays with shifting perspective to portray the other from within; in Pincher Martin, s/he explores temporality and timelessness to reveal post-mortem individual consciousness or unconsciousness, and in Free Fall, s/he produces a first-person retrospective narration where the protagonist deals with the act of story- telling and attempts to reconstruct his identity through manipulating subnarratives and perspectives.
