Deleuzian Fabulation and the Scars of History

Ronald Bogue

eBook (PDF) i

The concept of fabulation makes a late appearance in Deleuze's career and in only limited detail, but by tracing its connections to other concepts and situating them within Deleuze's general aesthetics, Ronald Bogue develops a theory of fabulation which he proposes as the guiding principle of a Deleuzian approach to literary narrative.

About the Author

Ronald Bogue is Distinguished Research Professor of Comparative Literature and Josiah Meigs Distinguished Teaching Professor at the University of Georgia.


Bogue's already considerable reputation as an interpreter of Deleuze is further enhanced by this scintillating book which provides powerful and suggestive readings of a wide range of literary texts, using these texts to 'read' Deleuze and vice versa.
