Abstract (in English): 

Genre is a key means by which we categorize the many forms of literature and culture, but it is also much more than that: in talk and writing, in music and images, in film and television, genres actively generate and shape our knowledge of the world. Understanding genre as a dynamic process rather than a set of stable rules, this book explores:

  • the relation of simple to complex genres
  • the history of literary genre in theory
  • the generic organisation of implied meanings
  • the structuring of interpretation by genre
  • the uses of genre in teaching.
