Narratological interest

I have applied narratology (mainly Genette-Bal) to Homer, Herodotus, Sophocles, and Euripides in some 100 articles. I have written a narratological commentary on the Odyssey (CUP 2001). I am currently editing a multi-volume narratological history of ancient Greek literature, of which two volumes (one on Narrators: Brill 2004, one on Time, Brill 2007)have appeared and a third (on Space) is in progress.This narratological history is written by an international team of ca. 12 people.
