Time in the Novel

For a long time I was bewitched with the idea of representing time in the Novel. After many years of search a Newton fell on my head. There is one kind of time called narrative time (also called dialogic time) where the writer pursues his inner consciousness. In the postmodern novel this kind of time is represented through the streams of consciousness. On the other hand there is symbolic time, an enunciation of the past, present and future also called as lived time.
