This study introduces a variety of theoretical models for the reading of narrative: Genette, Barthes, Bakhtin, Iser, among others. Its aim is pedagogic; to show how such models can be used to explain how a text's effects are created, and to make such applied readings available as negotiable practice for a student audience. The seven American novels discussed come mainly from the traditional `canon'; a final chapter on Their Eyes Are Watching God argues, however, for a broadening of the boundaries of `literary' discourse.
