Selling The Story
Transaction And Narrative Value In Balzac, Dostoevsky, And Zola
de Jonathan Paine
Sobre o livro
Every writer is a player in the marketplace for literature. Jonathan Paine locates the economics ingrained within the stories themselves, showing how the business of literature affects even storytelling devices such as genre, plot, and repetition. In this new model of criticism, the text is a record of its author's sales pitch.
