Scholars' Press This book is an in-depth study of the theory of narratology as applied to both the Arabic and the English novel with a special reference to selected novels by Naguib Mahfouz and John Fowles. The study is basically concerned with examining certain issues like discrepancies between story-time and discourse-time, characterization, the transmission process of narrative, voice, focalizer and embedded narratives. These are all employed as tools to decipher hidden and implied meanings through a deep analysis of the structure of narratives. The book, therefore, examines the usefulness of the theory of narratology in text interpretation.
