Críticas: In this book, Peter Lamarque brings his distinctive views about fiction and literature to the related but different topic of narrative. Narratives, especially but not only literary ones, are not windows through which we look at the actual or possible worlds, but opaque constructions we must look into to discover not just what is represented but the way it is represented. Taking this basic idea and applying it to both longstanding and recent controversies about the nature and value of narratives of many kinds, Lamarque reaches enlightening, new conclusions about these topics. This is essential reading for anyone interested in narrative. -- Robert Stecker, Professor of Philosophy, Central Michigan University The Opacity of Narrative is a must-read for anyone with a serious interest in narrative. Smart, provocative, and urbane, it is Peter Lamarque at his philosophical best. -- John Gibson, Associate Professor of Philosophy, University of Louisville With characteristic acuity, incisiveness, and analytical precision Peter Lamarque shows how what we see in literature is importantly unlike what we see through photography, and he offers a full investigation of the various roles narrative does, and -- equally important -- does not, play in literary experience. Working in concert, this powerful set of essays takes the next major step in understanding the often unobvious relations between narrative, art, and life. -- Garry Hagberg, James H. Ottaway Jr. Professor of Philosophy and Aesthetics, Bard College Incisively argued and elegantly written, this book provides a compelling and distinctive philosophy of literature from one of the foremost philosophers of art today. Lamarque advances a refreshing skepticism toward many commonly accepted views about narrative and its relation to literature, including whether truth and emotional responses are as important to the value of literature as often claimed. Adapting the concept of opacity from philosophy of language, he endorses the view that the content of the work, its characters and events, are constituted by their modes of presentation. Vivid examples illustrate how, in reading literature, we look at it rather than through it to fictional worlds. -- Susan Feagin, Research Professor, Temple University and former editor of The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism This welcome volume collects together eight of Peter Lamarque's published papers on narrative as well as adding two that have not been previously published. They re-express, clarify, and in some places supplement the view expressed in the book he co-wrote with Olsen (1994) ... Having the essays together, as well as being a great convenience, brings out some of the depth and complexity of Lamarque's account ... The laudatory claims on the back cover get it right; this is an important book which is essential reading for anyone working in the area-whether that means in the current narrow debate on literature and narrative or in the debate on narrative more generally. -- Derek Matravers, The Open University, UK The Philosophical Quarterly
