THEORIES OF PROSE NARRATIVE
NARRATOLOGY

"The narratives of the world are numberless. . . .  Caring nothing for the division between good and bad literature, narrative is international, transhistorical, transcultural; it is simply there like life itself" (Roland Barthes)

“Man is in his actions and practice, as well as in his fictions, essentially a story-telling animal” (Alasdair MacIntyre)
