Book is in orignal plastic wrap from publisher. . . . . . . . In this study, Benjamin McRae Amoss, Jr., examines the role of time in various works by Stendhal, demonstrating how the French writer’s concern with temporality is reflected in his construction of narrative. Applying and expanding the theories proposed by Paul Ricoeur in ‘Temps et recit,’ Amoss investigates Stendhal’s use of narrative or quasi-narrative devices as a means of coming to terms with the perplexities of time and the human perception of it. Amoss focuses particularly on the ways in which Stendhal’s shaping of narrative---both historical and fictional---mediates between cosmic time and individual lived time, or phenomenological time. Winner of the 1990 South Atlantic Modern Language Association Award. Includes Bibliography and Index.
