Overview

“Narratology” is a recent method of literary criticism adopted by exegetes for the analysis of Old Testament narratives. The aim of this introduction is to help the student find a way through the forest of new terms used by specialists and to give numerous examples of texts analyzed according to this new methodology. The work also contains, as far as possible, references to the origin of the terminology, to basic works in the field, to interesting discussions, and to different schools in literary criticism. Moreover, this manual tries to open a forum for a constructive dialogue between exegetes using more classical methods and those who favor this new way of exploring the well-known landscape of Scripture. The principal notions explained and illustrated are story, time, plot, narrator and reader; character, and point of view.
