Abstract

This paper addresses Paul Auster’s Oracle Night (2004) through the lens of storyworld theories. This approach seeks to reveal the transfictional and metaleptic dimensions of the novel while also analyzing recurrent Austerian motifs such as the figure of the writer-investigator, the porous border between fiction and reality, and the mise en abyme of the writing experience itself.
