Book Co-Authored by Rabinowitz Receives Positive Review in Choice


Peter Rabinowitz

A book co-authored by Peter Rabinowitz, the Sidney Wertimer Professor of Comparative Literature, was the subject of a positive review in Choice (Oct., 2012).  Narrative theory: core concepts and critical debates, by David Herman et. al. ( Ohio State, 2012) is called “a wonderful resource for introducing students to four major approaches to the study of narrative and the major debates on the subject of narrative.”


The review notes, “ In clear and lively prose, Herman (Ohio State Univ.) et al. summarize major points of their respective approaches and deftly apply them to canonical fictional narratives. However, the genius of this volume--and what sets it apart from the various competing introductions to narrative theory--is its structure.”  Rabinowitz and James Phelan co-authored the section on rhetorical narrative theory.


Reviewer J.J. Donahue of SUNY Potsdam adds, “ This is the most dynamic introduction to narrative theory in print. It will work well for all academic readers and it is must-have for any scholar working in narrative theory. Summing Up: Essential. All readers.”
