Abstract:
			
This theoretical study of linguistic structure in literature focuses
on verse and narrative from a linguistic perspective. Nigel Fabb
provides a simple and realistic linguistic explanation of poetic form
in English from 1500-1900, drawing on the English and American verse
and oral narrative tradition, as well as contemporary criticism. He
offers a new linguistic approach to how metre and rhythm work in
poetry, based on pragmatic theory. He provides a pragmatic explanation
of formal ambiguity and indeterminacy and their aesthetic effects.

Contents:

2. Generated metrical form
3. Communicated form

5. Lines
