Paratexts

£35.99

Product description

Paratexts are those liminal devices that mediate between book, author and reader: titles, forewords, dedications, epigraphs, notes, intertitles, interviews and conversations with the author, and publishers' jacket copy all form part of a book's private and public history. In this first English translation of Paratexts, Gerard Genette explores how these paratextual elements which surround and support a text influence its reception.

Good condition. Slight discolouration on outside edges of pages. Original stamp/ price on inside back cover. Spine intact but slight discolouration.
