Beschreibung:

This book examines unreliable narration in novels by Kazuo Ishiguro and Max Frisch. It offers new perspectives on the two authors' oeuvre and on narrative unreliability as a narratological concept. It demarcates unreliable narration from related phenomena, such as unnatural narration, and points out similarities in Ishiguro's and Frisch's work.
Contents: Unreliable narration - Unreliability - Narratology - Unnatural narration - Kazuo Ishiguro - Max Frisch - Narrative strategies - Narrator - Literary theory - 20th-century English literature - 20th-century German literature - Identity - Memory - Self-deception - Fictional world - Possible-world theory - Postmodernism.
Since the late 1990s unreliable narration has garnered popularity in narrative theory and has sparked a lively debate among scholars. This book traces the theoretical discussions surrounding narrative unreliability and examines the relationship of unreliable narration to antimimetic techniques of portraying self-deception. Standing on the border between classical and postclassical narratology, the study analyses Kazuo Ishiguro's and Max Frisch's innovative narrative strategies, offering new perspectives on their oeuvre and on unreliable narration as a narratological concept. A comparison of the methods Ishiguro and Frisch employ to explore the psychology of their narrators reveals a fascinating parallel in their development as novelists.
