The contributions in this volume are all related to one of Ulrich Broich's main fields of research and teaching, the way stories are told in the various literary genres. The papers range from Chaucer to 20th-century literature; they discuss poems, prologues, plays and novels, French philosophers and English sermons, the Anglo-Boer War and totalitarianism.
