    In: Opening Acts, 2015
    Description: In the beginning there was . . . the beginning. And with the beginning came the power to tell a story. Few book-length studies of narrative beginnings exist, and not one takes a feminist perspective.Opening Actsreveals the important role of beginnings as moments of discursive authority with power and agency that have been appropriated by writers from historically marginalized groups. Catherine Romagnolo argues for a critical awareness of how social identity plays a role in the strategic use and critical interpretation of narrative beginnings. The twentieth-century U.S. women writers whom Romagnolo studies-Edith Wharton, H.D., Toni Morrison, Julia Alvarez, and Amy Tan-have seized the power to disrupt conventional structures of authority and undermine historical master narratives of marriage, motherhood, U.S. nationhood, race, and citizenship. Using six of their novels as points of entry, Romagnolo illuminates the ways in which beginnings are potentially subversive, thereby disrupting the reinscription of hierarchically gendered and racialized conceptions of authorship and agency.

    In: Narrative Beginnings, 2009
    Description: George Eliot wrote that "man cannot do without the make-believe of a beginning." Beginnings, it turns out, can be quite unusual, complex, and deceptive. The first major volume to focus on this critical but neglected topic, this collection brings together theoretical studies and critical analyses of beginnings in a wide range of narrative works spanning several centuries and genres. The international and interdisciplinary scope of these essays, representing every major theoretical perspective-including feminist, cognitive, postcolonial, postmodern, rhetorical, ethnic, narratological, and hypertext studies-extends from classic literary fiction to nonfictional discourse to popular culture. The authors, respected scholars and emerging critics, ask what conventions structure our understanding of beginnings before we encounter them; how best to analyze and comprehend beginnings in historical, traditional, and postmodern works; and how endings are (often unexpectedly) related to beginnings. The contributors use historical, political, narratological, and psychological frameworks to pursue these and related questions in works by Laurence Sterne, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, Samuel Beckett, Manuel Puig, Salman Rushdie, Julia Alvarez, and feminist hypertext fiction. Together their essays comprise the single most important volume for theorizing about and understanding narrative beginnings.

    Description: Für zahlreiche Textsorten ist der Textanfang von großer Bedeutung. So können die Überschrift, die ersten Zeilen oder Seiten darüber entscheiden, ob ein Zeitungsartikel, eine Anleitung oder ein Roman überhaupt gelesen werden. Doch bis wohin geht der Textanfang? Und welche Textteile gehören dazu? Um diese Fragen zu beantworten, muss man sowohl ästhetische Texte als auch Gebrauchstexte aller Kommunikationsformen und -bereiche untersuchen. Entsprechend heterogen sind die Zugänge und Methoden zur Analyse der Einstiegsphasen und -elemente von Texten. In diesem Band reicht das Spektrum von sprachwissenschaftlichen Beschreibungstechniken (z. B. textlinguistischen, korpuspragmatischen und stilistischen) über literaturwissenschaftliche (z. B. Autoren- oder Epochenstile) bis hin zu sprachdidaktischen (z. B. Textproduktionsroutinen). Ulrike Krieg-Holz ist Professorin für Germanistische Sprachwissenschaft an der Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt. Ihre Forschungsinteressen umfassen theoretische und empirisch-funktionale Zugänge zur Beschreibung von Gegenwartssprache. Christian Schütte ist Senior Lecturer für Germanistische Sprachwissenschaft an der Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt. Er forscht zur Text-, Medien- und Diskurslinguistik sowie zur Argumentationsanalyse.
