Ann Banfield, is a professor Emeritus of English at the University of California, Berkeley.[1]

Banfield has taught at Berkeley since 1975 and is a specialist in linguistics, critical theory and the use of philosophy as a cornerstone of modernism.[2] In the field of narratology, Banfield has been given lasting credit for her concepts of narratorless subjectivity and adresseelessness in narration.[3] Unlike linguists who apply linguistics to literature, Banfield has the sensitivity of a literary critic who has mastered linguistics.[4]
