Jerry Camery-Hoggatt, in IRONY IN MARK'S GOSPEL, believes that--when applied to Gospel texts--sociological analysis and literary criticism may be far closer together in purpose and intent than is often supposed. Professor Camery-Hoggatt therefore begins his work with an exploration of the social functions of narrative in general, and of ironic narrative in particular. He then turns to the literary functions of the internal elements of the narrative, and draws the two discus- sions together into a single framework that can be used as a lens through which Mark's Gospel can be read.
