 About the Book 

In this book, the author presents the results of her analysis of the use of the two tenses, imparfait and passe simple, in French narrative discourse. One conclusion she reaches is that these two tenses can be defined as state and event, respectively, and that, with such definitions, different temporal and aspectual values that have traditionally been associated with these two tenses can be united.
