A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Waiting for the End examines two dozen contemporary novels as demonstrations of the continuing concern with the gender of ending in narrative. Traditional concepts of the role of ending came under question in the later twentieth century, as feminists began to argue that the structure of rising action and climax was patently masculinist. The effort to theorize alternatives to that structure was echoed by contemporary novelists, male as well as female, who sought to complicate conventional notions of ending. Often those complications of ending(s) have spoken to a growing awareness that ending in narrative is artificial and that plot structure and ending need to make gestures toward the reader s sense that while narrative may end, what narrative attempts to represent will always evade the artifice of fiction.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Waiting for the End examines two dozen contemporary novels as demonstrations of the continuing concern with the gender of ending in narrative. Traditional concepts of the role of ending came under question in the later twentieth century, as feminists began to argue that the structure of "rising action" and "climax" was patently masculinist. The effort to theorize alternatives to that structure was echoed by contemporary novelists, male as well as female, who sought to complicate conventional notions of ending. Often those complications of ending(s) have spoken to a growing awareness that ending in narrative is artificial and that plot structure and ending need to make gestures toward the reader's sense that while narrative may end, what narrative attempts to represent will always evade the artifice of fiction.
