Abstract:

This is the first book-length study of how point of view is manifested
linguistically in dramatic texts. It examines such issues as how readers
process the shifts in viewpoint that can occur within such texts. Using
insights from cognitive linguistics, the book aims to explain how the
analysis of point of view in drama can be undertaken, and how this is
fruitful for understanding textual and discoursal effects in this genre.
Following on from a consideration of existing frameworks for the analysis
of point of view, a cognitive approach to deixis is suggested as being
particularly profitable for explaining the viewpoint effects that can arise
in dramatic texts. To expand on the large number of examples discussed
throughout the book, the penultimate chapter consists of an extended
analysis of a single play. This book is relevant to scholars in a range of
areas, including linguistics, literary studies and cognitive science.

"A sophisticated stylistics of drama has been a long time coming, and Dan
McIntyre's book sets the agenda. This book is significant for offering
principled solutions for narratology, for cognitive poetics, for literary
scholars and of course for advancing a poetics of drama. It will be
regarded by future stylisticians of theatre as a turning point in the field."
