Humankind has always had an innate attraction to stories whether told or written. They are created to teach us, warn us, entertain or even scare us. Good stories can disclose well- disguised vices and accentuate the importance of moral values. Moreover, skillfully presented accounts of events keep us intrigued and trying to put together the pieces of the narrative’s puzzle in order to guess what happens next as the action rises to its climax. To strengthen this effect on the reader a number of narrative techniques related to narrative’s time, point of view or presentation have been invented. This course paper will focus on narrative analysis in Ian McEwan‘s novel Atonement and will look at how different narrative modes are used in the text.
