Targeting the needs and interests of todays readers, the author uses down-to-earth language and builds on readers familiarity with narrative devices in film, television, and other popular media to teach this new approach to literary analysis.

While offering more technical depth, Chatman never overwhelms. He provides unusually clear and exact definitions of such terms as characterization and point-of- view, along with many illustrations of how these techniques actually operate in short stories. His explanations and examples enable readers to read narratives with a new awareness of how they are constructed.
