Example text

In the context of Lesage’s continuation to Don Quixote and Congreve’s Incognita, Thomas Pavel’s assessment in The Lives of the Novel that “one reason why the novel’s early development was not always properly understood is that for so long there were no written rules meant to govern prose narrative” (2013, 7) seems too strong a statement.  My thanks to Pat Rogers for pointing me in the direction of Stevens’s translation. In what follows, I will be citing from Stevens’s translation of Lesage.  The most important treatises on the rules in prose narrative include Pierre-​Daniel Huet’s Traité de l’origine des romans ([1670] 1672), Du Plaisir’s Sentiments sur les lettres N e o c l a s s i c a l P o e t i c s a n d t h e R i s e of t h e N o v e l [ 9 ] 10 in Dialogue sur les héros du roman (1688) might have ridiculed the novel, but others, like Chapelain and d’Aubignac, commented more positively on the form (see Esmein 2004).

And I propose to treat his actual psychological aim of catching a train as irrelevant for solving our particular problem, which only requires that his aim—​his “situational aim”—​was to cross the road as quickly as was compatible with safety. (1994, 166–​68) The “situation” in this example is the busy road, which is structured by particular physical and social elements, such as the cars, other pedestrians, and traffic rules. Our man Richard now needs to chart a path across this situation which helps him achieve his aim of crossing the road.

It considers the novels as complex constellations of a situational logic in which the author’s situational aim is to develop a narrative. This situational aim involves a degree of exploration and experimentation as the vraisemblance of the narrative is designed. Hence, the problem-​solution model I propose considers the trade-​offs between the logic of situations and the rules as broad indicators for how to chart a path across them. I will outline the basic features of the individual rules and their successful solutions at the beginning of each of the three parts of this book and then, in the case studies, trace the ways in which authors have manipulated the logic of situations in their novels.
