Texte du rabat

In this important contribution to narrative theory, Marie-Laure Ryanapplies insights from artificial intelligence and the theory of possible worlds tothe study of narrative and fiction. For Ryan, the theory of possible worlds providesa more nuanced way of discussing the commonplace notion of a fictional "world,"while artificial intelligence contributes to narratology and the theory of fictiondirectly via its researches into the congnitive processes of texts and automaticstory generation. Although Ryan applies exotic theories to the study of narrativeand to fiction, her book maintains a solid basis in literary theory and makes theformal models developed by AI researchers accessible to the student of literature.By combining the philosophical background of possible world theory with modelsinspired by AI, the book fulfills a pressing need in narratology for new paradigmsand an interdisciplinary perspective.
