Because of You : Understanding Second-Person Storytelling, Paperback / softback Book

Because of You : Understanding Second-Person Storytelling Paperback / softback

Part of the Lettre series


Second-person storytelling is a continually present and diverse technique in the history of literature that appears only once in the oeuvre of an author.

Based on key narratives of the postwar period, Evgenia Iliopoulou approaches the phenomenon in an inductive way, starting out from the essentials of grammar and rhetoric, and aims to improve the general understanding of second-person narrative within literature.

In its various forms and typologies, the second person amplifies and expands the limits of representation, thus remaining a narrative enigma: a small narrative gesture - with major narrative impact.
