Summary: Narrative is one of the ways we organize and understand the world. It is found everywhere: not only in films and books, but also in everyday conversations and in the nonfictional discourses of journalists, historians, educators, psychologists, and others. This book offers a comprehensive examination of the basic issues and concepts of narrative analysis. It brings together many theories the field of "narratology" along with ideas drawn from linguistics and cognitive science. Edward Branigan argues that narrative should be viewed as a mode of thought with distinctive forms and processes. Just as modern linguistics searches for the psychological bases of language competence, so narratology should attempt to give a psychologically valid account of our comprehension narrative.
