Abstract:
			
Cognitive Poetics is a new way of thinking about literature, involving
the application of cognitive linguistics and psychology to literary
texts. This student-friendly book provides a set of case studies to
help students understand the theory and master the practice of
cognitive poetics in analysis.

Written by a range of well-known scholars from a variety of
disciplines and countries, Cognitive Poetics in Practice offers
students a unique insight into this exciting subject. In each chapter,
contributors present a practical application of the methods and
techniques of cognitive poetics, to a range of texts, from Wilfred
Owen to Roald Dahl. The editors' general introduction provides an
overview of the field, and each chapter begins with an editors'
introduction to set the chapter in context. Specifically designed
sections suggesting further activities for students are also provided
at the end of each case study.

Cognitive Poetics in Practice can be used on its own or as a companion
volume to Peter Stockwell's Cognitive Poetics: An Introduction.

This book is critical reading for students on courses in cognitive
poetics, stylistics and literary linguistics and will be of interest
to all those involved in literary studies, critical theory and
linguistics.

Abstract:
			
This book represents a new direction at the interface between the
fields of stylistics and corpus linguistics, namely the use of a
corpus methodology to investigate the ways in which people's words and
thoughts are presented in written narratives. A 260,000 word
electronic corpus of late 20th century written texts, including
fiction, news reports and (auto)biographies is analysed by the
authors, providing a detailed account of new theoretical insights,
comparisons between different text types and detailed accounts of
individual texts.
