This book is a close study of Miss Burney's technical proficiency as a novelist. It describes the techniques she used to create point of view, characterization, tempo, and plot construction; it demonstrates how effectively or ineffectively she employed these techniques; and it discusses her overall contribution to the craft of novel-writing. The book also examines the relationship between her mastery of the technical aspects of the novel and the success or failure of the individual novels to more accurately place Burney in the history of the English novel.

By identifying techniques of anticipation that occur in the novels of Theodor Fontane and Thomas Mann and by grouping them in a systematic way, the author presents new information about Fontane's and Mann's use of this particular narrative device. This study also has a general theoretical purpose: it provides a framework for examining techniques of anticipation in the novel genre. By exploring how these techniques function in particular novels, the contribution of anticipatory devices to narrative integration and their structural significance for the unity of the novel is demonstrated.

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,7, University of Munster, language: English, abstract: In James Joyce's novel "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man" a variety of narrative techniques is used. In this research paper I want to explore how the use of different narrative techniques correlates with and indicates the protagonist's development towards both an artist and an autonomous adult. Except of the concluding diary entries, the novel is narrated by a third-person narrator who has got a limited point of view since he is focalized through Stephen. The narrator presents Stephen's consciousness and activities in various ways; an important aspect about his narration is that he persistently adapts his style to Stephen's idiom and mood. In some passages the narrator reports almost objectively on events, however, often he renders Stephen's consciousness, for which he uses different narrative techniques. Since Dorrit Cohn is thought to be one of the most important researchers on the field of narrative techniques concerning the presentation of consciousness, I will base this research paper on her definitions. Cohn distinguishes three ways a third-person narrator can use for rendering a person's consciousness: psycho-narration, narrated monologue and quoted interior monologue, all of which are used in the novel. I will focus on psycho-narration and narrated monologue since these are the techniques predominantly used. Psycho- narration is the narrator's description of a character's thoughts and feelings, thus, it is the most indirect way of rendering a character's consciousness. The third-person reference and the tense of narration are maintained. The presence of a narrator is marked since a verbum dicendi is always used. Narrated monologue uses the third person singular and the preterite as well; however, at the same time the syntactical structure remains that of direct discourse with exclam
