Time and Narrative (Volume 2)

In quantity 1 of this three-volume paintings, Paul Ricoeur tested the kin among time and narrative in historic writing. Now, in quantity 2, he examines those family in fiction and theories of literature.

Ricoeur treats the query of simply how some distance the Aristotelian inspiration of "plot" in narrative fiction should be extended and even if there's a aspect at which narrative fiction as a literary shape not just blurs on the edges yet ceases to exist in any respect. notwithstanding a few semiotic theorists have proposed all fiction should be decreased to an atemporal constitution, Ricoeur argues that fiction depends upon the reader's knowing of narrative traditions, which do evolve yet unavoidably comprise a temporal size. He seems at how time is basically expressed in narrative fiction, really via use of tenses, standpoint, and voice. He applies this method of 3 books which are, in a feeling, stories approximately time: Virgina Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway; Thomas Mann's Magic Mountain; and Marcel Proust's Remembrance of items Past.

"—Robert Detweiler, faith and Literature

Example text

It must be six o’clock. I have never had adventures. Things have happened to me, events, incidents, anything you like. But no adventures. It isn’t a question of words; I am beginning to understand. There is something to which I clung more than all the rest—without completely realizing it. It wasn’t love. Heaven forbid, not glory, not money. It was ... I had imagined that at certain times my life could take on a rare and precious quality. There was no need for extraordinary circumstances: all I asked for was a little precision.

But, at other times, you must stop and mark time because two families, one going up the street, the other coming down, have met and have solidly clasped hands. I go forward slowly. I stand a whole head above both columns and I see hats, a sea of hats. Most of them are black and hard. From time to time you see one fly off at the end of an arm and you catch the soft glint of a skull; then, after a few instants of heavy flight, it returns. At 16 Rue Tournebride, Ur-bain, the hatter, specializing in forage caps, has hung up as a symbol, an immense, red archbishop’s hat whose gold tassels hang six feet from the ground.

No one lives in this section of the Boulevard Noir. The climate is too harsh there, the soil too barren for life to be established there and grow. The three Scieries des Freres Soleil (the Freres Soleil furnished the panelled arch of the Eglise Saint-Cecile de la Mer, which cost a hundred thousand francs) open on the West with all their doors and windows, on the quiet Rue Jeanne-Berthe-Coeuroy which they fill with purring sounds. They turn their backs of triple adjoining walls on the Boulevard Victor-Noir.
