Unexpected, Paperback (April 2015)
Explores the relationship between unexpected events in narrative and life. Focusing on surprise, spontaneous eruption and the unforeseeable, this book argues that stories help us to reconcile what we expect with what we experience. It also provides an overview of the question of surprise in philosophy and literature.
Invention of Deconstruction, Hardback (May 2013)
Why did deconstruction emerge when it did? Why did commentators in literary studies seem to need to look back on it from the earliest moments of its emergence? This book argues that the invention of deconstruction was spread across several decades, conducted by many people, and focused on its two central figures, Jacques Derrida and Paul de Man.
Postmodern Narrative Theory, Hardback (December 2010)
An accessible survey of the complex theories that have transformed the study of narrative in recent decades. This revised, updated and expanded edition of an established text now explores the relationship between postmodern narrative and postmodern theory more closely, and concludes with a new chapter on J.M. Coetzee's fiction.
About Time, Paperback (October 2010)» View all books by Mark Currie
Why have theorists approached narrative primarily as a form of retrospect? Mark Currie argues that anticipation and other forms of projection into the future are vital for an understanding of narrative and its effects in the world.
