Narratology

nar·ra·tol·o·gy [nerəˈtäləjē]

noun
  1. the branch of knowledge or literary criticism that deals with the structure and function of narrative and its themes, conventions, and symbols.

On first encounter, I’d have bet narratology was a medical specialization an M.D. might choose following residency. Turns out it’s a way to understand what we’ve been up to in the Agincourt Project.

Professor Mieke Bal’s Narratology: Introduction to the Theory of Narrative is one of the many books Amazon’s computers have recommended for my shelves, so I’ve begun to digest it and hope to measure Agincourt against the framework of her model. Could this be the catalyst for bringing the project to publication?
