Summary
Narratologies, both 'classical' structuralist narratology and the 'new narratologies' of the past twenty years, have mostly been built around the novel. At the same time, the history of narrative methods has become a recognised area of scholarly discussion. While this work is not confined to the history of the novel, the novel tends to be most prominent. The volume as a whole shows how much remains to be explored once we study narrative historically; how much comparison can enhance our understanding of Greek; and how much the study of Greek narrative can contribute to narratology more broadly
