Most widely held works by Robert Scholes
The nature of narrative by Robert Scholes( Book )

103 editions published between 1966 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,736 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the past forty years The Nature of Narrative has been an essential work for students of literature, teachers, writers, and scholars. Countering the tendency to view the novel as the paradigm case of literary narrative, Robert Scholes and Robert Kellogg offered a compelling history of narrative from antiquity to the twentieth century. Their main goal was to describe and analyze the nature of narrative's key elements: meaning, character, plot, and point of view." "The Fortieth Anniversary Edition of this groundbreaking work has been revised and expanded to include a new preface and a lengthy chapter by James Phelan on developments in narrative theory since 1966. This new material describes the principles and practices of structuralist, cognitive, feminist, and rhetorical approaches to narrative, paying special attention to their work on character, plot, and narrative discourse. A continued leader in the field of narrative studies, The Nature of Narrative offers unique and invaluable histories of both narrative and narrative theory. Book jacket."--Jacket

DUBLINERS has been called a landmark in modern literature. In its remarkable portrait of a city and its people, it dramatises ordinary life in the modern world.

The crafty reader by Robert Scholes( )

19 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 2,009 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This latest book from the literary critic Robert Scholes presents his exploration of the craft of reading. He deals with reading not as an art or performance given by a virtuoso reader, but as a craft that can be studied, taught, and learned. Those who master the craft of reading, Scholes contends, will justifiably take responsibility for the readings they produce and the texts they choose to read."--Jacket

Science fiction : history, science, vision by Robert Scholes( Book )

24 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the past century and a half, writers of what we have learned to call "science fiction" have been trying to create a modern conscience for the human race. In the same period many writers in the field have produced trivial, ephemeral works of "popular" fiction. The premise upon which this book is based is that a sufficient number of works of genuine merit have been produced in this field to justify its study as an aspect of modern literature, as well as an important feature of contemporary culture.--From foreword
Semiotics and interpretation by Robert Scholes( Book )

29 editions published between 1982 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 1,451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is intended as a companion piece to my earlier study, Structuralism in Literature, but differs from its predecessor in a number of respects. The study of structuralism was primarily theoretical, and its individual chapters were mainly devoted to discussions of the contributions certain Continental writers had made to the development of structuralism as an intellectual position. -- Description of the original version
