Investigating Dickens' Style aims to provide new and profound insights into
Dickens' language and style through the corpus-based study of collocation.
A resource for Dickens' and literary stylistics researchers, the study
makes use of the 4.6 million-word Dickens corpus to examine in detail
Dickens' linguistic innovation, and offers a nuanced understanding of his
use of language to achieve stylistic ends. At the centre of the study is a
close analysis of the two narratives in Bleak House, read as a focal point
for consideration of Dickens' stylistic development through his whole
writing life. This book puts forward a new corpus-driven approach to the
study of the language and style of literary texts.
