Narrative Techniques In Fiction Writing


In this module, students read, discuss, and analyze literary texts, focusing on the authors’ choices in developing and relating textual elements such as character development, point of view, and central ideas while also considering how a text’s structure conveys meaning and creates aesthetic impact. Additionally, students learn and practice narrative writing techniques as they examine the techniques of the authors whose stories students analyze in the module. The texts in this module develop complex characters who demonstrate conflicts between social conventions and the human psyche, particularly around the issues of war and gender. The texts take up the ideas of freedom and boundaries, bravery and cowardice, sense of self and societal expectations.
