    Abstract :
    Structuralism provides innovative grounds for the analysis of prose literature. The role of the fiction reader, story in the service of language, and story no longer for representing the concrete reality but for manufacturing new, relational, and pluralistic realities in language spaces are some of the outcomes of literary structuralism. In addition, the evidence to Culler’s formula as to the production of meaning in novels is because reading James structurally is strategic for creating new realities in the space of language. “Structuralism” includes the post-structural studies of fiction also. The modern novel uses the sources of language to create structures where the sign plays freely and the reader finds occasion for practical criticism and interactive interpretation. The roots of structuralism from the classical times to the rise of “New criticism” will be discussed under “early structuralism”. A literary work presupposed other works, genres, styles, and structures of meaning which go beyond the work itself. And they regarded literature a kind of langue of which each specific work was an instance of parole.
