    Narrative is generally classified as a mimetic medium.‘Mimesis’is a termused to describe hterary modes which aim to‘imitate’human thoughts。speech,action and the world in which they take place:drama and narrativewould be more readily recognised as mimetic than would lyric poetry.Giventhe mimetic impulses of narrativ.and Johnson's recognition of the way inwhich narrative presents US with‘History’。it is understandable that studentsexpect to study novels and short stories in ways which accentuate theirrelation to the worldly situations which they dramatise.For instance.It would appear that such novelsreflect their historical contexts almost transparently.However,approaches to the novel and its contexts which assume that anarrative imitates or simply reflects the times in which it was made encounterobvious difficulties when confronted by certain narrative strategies.Thesechallenging,self,conscious narrative strategies are explored in Chapter 5through Laurence Sterne’s Tristram Shah#(an eighteenth-century novel),John Fowles’s The French Lieutenant's Woman,Paul Auster’s City of Glass,and Salman Rushdie’s Midnight's Children(twentieth,century novels).Thesenarratives playfully expose the limits of mimesis.Although I shall argue thateven playful,sceptical narrative strategies lead the reader back to worldlyinsights into societies and histories——in the case of Midnight's Children tocolonial domination and its resistance——it will be important to demonstratehow these contexts have to be traced through narrative as a complex medium.This remains the case even when narratives appear to be transparentlymlmetle.
