Narratology is the study of structure in narratives. The theory of narrative or narratology was developed in the 1960s.[1] Narratology is based on the idea of a common literary language. Narratives are found and told through oral and written language.[2] Narratology has helped to make it easier to understand the how and why of narrative.
