A collection of original essays establishing how wide the intellectual boundaries of narrative theory have become, the Edinburgh Companion to Narrative Theories showcases the latest approaches to diverse narratives across many media and in numerous disciplines. The book brings founders of the field of post-classical narrative theory together with established scholars who have made significant changes in the understanding of narrative and younger scholars who are putting narrative theories to use on new media forms and new literatures. This is the first anthology to consider what narrative is and what it can do in the wake of various turns in literary studies (the affective, the posthuman, the cognitive) which have been emerging in the context of digital media and algorithmic capital. Narrative genres persist, and they continue to do vital work in the world. Narrative theories provide the vocabulary for talking about how that work gets done.
