Description:
Princeton, NJ, U.S.A.: Princeton University Press, 1989. In this book the author is concerned with a central contradiction in narrative, between its drive toward resolution of conflict, mystery, or aberration at its end and its need to cultivate and promote these instabilities; where other critics have insisted on the primacy or adequacy of eventual closure, or in reaction have promoted a supposedly modern resistance to closure, the author argues that narrative and closure are essentially incongruous (a bright, clean, tight copy in nearly perfect condition; in stock & available for immediate shipment from a reliable independent bookstore) .
