This chapter reviews books published in 2005 in the field of narrative theory.

The nature of the books published in 2005 in the areas of narrative and narrative theory is unusual in two respects. For one, there are an unusually high number of collaborative volumes devoted to the field of narrative theory as such. Some of these volumes offer a survey of the discipline as a whole, focusing on its past, present, and possible futures, its important terms and concepts, its methodologies, and its famously elusive object, while others provide a survey of a particular subfield of narrative theory. Secondly, exceptionally few of the monographs published in 2005 are primarily devoted to narrative, to narrative theory, or to a narratological analysis of a particular literary or non-literary topic. For this reason, it seems appropriate to divide the following review article into three sections: (1) collaborative volumes dedicated to the field of narrative theory as a whole; (2) collaborative volumes dedicated to a specific subfield within the larger area of narrative theory; and (3) monographs dedicated to a specific narrative topic.
