A Bibliography of Second-Person Fiction and Related Critical Theory


[top of site]

[full bibliography of fiction]
[selected fiction bibliography with notes]   [criticism and theory bibliography]

 

These three bibliographies, of "Fiction," "Selected Fiction," and "Critical Theory," are offered as a resource for people interested in reading, and reading about, second person narrative texts. The project is ongoing, and I'd welcome any suggestions on works that might be added, as well as discussion about the works themselves.

For a compact and valuable companion to the exploration of narrative-you, however, you might go straight to the following issues of the literary journal Style.

Fall 1994 (num. 3, vol. 28). Special Issue: Second Person Narrative.

    Edited by Prof. Monika Fludernik, this issue is dedicated to the topic of second-person fiction. Its nine articles provide an excellent background to further theoretical and critical discussion of the topic.

Winter 1994 (num. 4, vol. 28). Bibliographical Issue.

    Includes an extensive, 4-part bibliography, divided into:
    - A. "Texts of Second-Person Narration and Border Cases"
    - B. "Texts Using the Second-Person Pronoun Not in Reference to the Narrative Protagonist of for Purposes Other Than Narration"
    - C. "Films With Second-Person Voice-Over"
    - D. "Criticism"

Autumn 1997 (num. 1, vol. 31).

    The article "Beyond the Brain of Katherine Mansfield: the Radical Potentials and Recuperations of Second-Person Fiction," in this issue, responds (in part) to Style's Fall 1994 Special Issue, and proposes one of the directions literary critical theory might go next in its exploration of second-person fiction.

ALSO!

Do you want to hear about it: The Use of the Second Person in Electronic Fiction.
This is a concise and informative essay on the place of "second-person" narrative in electronic fiction, in which it has a strong tradition, by Ruth Nestvold.

Do you think you're part of this? Digital texts and the second person address.
For an insightful and convivially argued essay on the "second-person" in narrative, and in particular, it's functions and effects in electronic narratives, you really should read this. It is by Jill Walker.


 

Introduction.

The bibliography is divided into three sections. The first is an uncritically selected list of works of fiction that make use of the "you" in a notable way. The second is a smaller list of selected stories with brief comments offering notes on how the "second person" functions in each. The third bibliography, which is also partially annotated, covers theoretical and critical texts that comment directly on both particular and general uses of the "second-person" pronoun in narrative.

Finally, by the very nature of such a bibliography, the following list of titles will always be incomplete. I would appreciatively receive any and all additional titles and comments, taa.

Part One. Novels and Short Fiction.
Uncritically Selected and Unannotated

This section of the bibliography presents an uncritically selected and unannotated compilation of short stories and novels in which the "second-person" pronoun will be found.

A number of titles are drawn from articles that discuss "second-person" narrative (see the Critical Theory section of this bibliography). These are included where the critic's discussion makes them appear of particular interest and where sufficient (though occasionally incomplete) publication details are supplied.

Many of the texts given here are annotated in the second part of this bibliography. If you wish to take me to task for any of my commentaries or for inclusion of any of the works listed here, please do, I'd welcome discussion.
