This book is the first nontechnical description of the principles and procedures of narrative criticism. Mark Allan Powell distinguishes literary criti cism from various modes of historical criticism--source, form, and redaction--and also delineates several types of literary criticism--structuralist, rhetorical, reader- response, and narrative. He then describes, analyzes, and illustrates the categories that narrative criticism employs, such as implied author and reader, narrator, character, events, settings. Mark Allan Powell is Assistant Professor of New Testament and Director of Continuing and Post-Graduate Studies at Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, Ohio.
