Overview

The Fictions of Language and the Languages of Fiction presents a detailed analysis of free indirect discourse as it relates to narrative theory and the crucial problematic of how speech and thought are represented in fiction. Building on the insights of Ann Banfield's Unspeakable Sentences, Monika Fludernik radically extends Banfield's model to accommodate evidence from conversational narrative, non-fictional prose, and literary works from Chaucer to the present. Fludernik's model subsumes earlier insights into the forms and functions of quotation and aligns them with discourse strategies observable in the oral language.
