Narratology: An Introduction

By Susana Onega ; Jose Angel Garcia Landa | Go to book overview

the moral under the aspect of the aesthetic? And could we answer that question without giving a narrative account of the history of objectivity itself, an account that would already prejudice the outcome of the story we would tell in favor of the moral in general?

The words 'narrative,' 'narration,' 'to narrate,' and so on derive via the Latin gnārus ('knowing,' 'acquainted with,' 'expert,' 'skilful,' and so forth) and narrō ('relate,' 'tell') from the Sanskrit root gnâ ('know'). The same root yields γνώριμος ('knowable,' 'known'): see EMILE BOISACQ, Dictionnaire étymologique de la langue grecque ( Heidelberg, 1950), under the entry for this word. My Thanks to Ted Morris of Cornell, one of our great etymologists.
