A Glance Beyond Doubt : Narration, Representation, Subjectivity. by Shlomith Rimmon-Kenan

A Glance Beyond Doubt : Narration, Representation, Subjectivity. Shlomith Rimmon-Kenan answers the first question in the affirmative and answers the second not through an abstract theoretical discussion but by following the lead of twentieth-century narratives that have taken representation and subjectivity as their themes.

A Glance beyond Doubt thus provides an important methodological contribution to narrative studies while .

A Glance beyond Doubt thus provides an important methodological contribution to narrative studies while offering fresh and sophisticated readings of important modernist and postmodernist novels. Rimmon-Kenan's work is valuable for students of narrative and of twentieth-century literature, and it has important implications for other disciplines now studying narrative, especially philosophy, historiography, psychoanalysis, and jurisprudence.

Rimmon-Kenan's new book, A Glance beyond Doubt, issues from this same resurgence of narrative analysis - a resurgence that the author herself helped initiate. Quite different from the earlier book in both method and argument, A Glance beyond Doubt reveals, in an engaging and highly readable style, the rich possibilities of some of the newer strands in narrative theory. It also reveals some of their potential limitations.

Can we talk responsibly about representation and subjectivity in the wake of postructuralism's destabilization of these concepts, and if so, how? Shlomith Rimmon-Kenan answers the first question in the affirmative and answers the second not through an abstract theoretical discussion but by following the lead of twentieth-century narratives that have taken representation and subjectivity as their themes. The result is a move beyond both traditional notions of these concepts and the poststructuralist undoing of them. Focusing on William Faulkner's Absalom, Absalom!, Vladimir Nabokov's The Real Life of Sebastian Knight, Christine Brooke-Rose's Thru, Samuel Beckett's Company, and Toni Morrison's Beloved, Rimmon-Kenan shows how modes of narration participate in the exploration of the problematics of representation and subjectivity. Her insightful analyses of the narrative strategies of these five novels demonstrate her point that narration itself provides a special access to representation and subjectivity. In addition, these analyses offer a compelling example of what it means to claim that we can treat narrative as theory. A Glance beyond Doubt thus provides an important methodological contribution to narrative studies while offering fresh and sophisticated readings of important modernist and postmodernist novels. Rimmon-Kenan's work is valuable for students of narrative and of twentieth-century literature, and it has important implications for other disciplines now studying narrative, especially philosophy, historiography, psychoanalysis, and jurisprudence.
