Cognitive poetics is a new way of thinking about literature, involving
the application of cognitive linguistics and psychology to literary
texts. This book is the first introductory text to this growing field.
In Cognitive Poetics: An Introduction, the reader is encouraged to
re-evaluate the categories used to understand literary reading and
analysis. Covering a wide range of literary genres and historical
periods, the book encompasses both American and European
approaches. Each chapter explores a different cognitive-poetic
framework and relates it to a literary text. Including a range of
activities, discussion points, suggestions for further reading and a
glossarial index, the book is both interactive and highly accessible.
Cognitive Poetics: An Introduction is essential reading for students
on stylistics and literary-linguistic courses, and will be of interest
to all those involved in literary studies, critical theory and
