Ariadne's Thread: Story Lines
Yale University Press, 1992 - Literary Criticism - 280 pages
In this brilliant and engaging book, one of America's leading literary critics explores the intricacies of narrative theory. Drawing on the mythical image of Ariadne's thread, J. Hillis Miller traces out the 'line' so often associated with narrative through a wide range of nineteenth- and twentieth-century works. In the process he illuminates the nature of literature as well as the nature of narrative.
