Abstract:

This book represents the state of the art in cognitive stylistics a
rapidly expanding field at the interface between linguistics, literary
studies and cognitive science. The twelve chapters combine linguistic
analysis with insights from cognitive psychology and cognitive
linguistics in order to arrive at innovative accounts of a range of
literary and textual phenomena. The chapters cover a variety of
literary texts, periods, and genres, including poetry, fictional and
non-fictional narratives, and plays. Some of the chapters provide new
approaches to phenomena that have a long tradition in literary and
linguistic studies (such as humour, characterisation, figurative
language, and metre), others focus on phenomena that have not yet
received adequate attention (such as split-selves phenomena, mind
style, and spatial language). This book is relevant to students and
scholars in a wide range of areas within linguistics, literary studies
and cognitive science.
