The State of Stylistics contains a broad collection of papers that
investigate how stylistics has evolved throughout the late 20th and early
21st centuries. In so doing, it considers how stylisticians currently
perceive their own respective fields of enquiry. It also defines what
stylistics is, and how we might use it in research and teaching.

"This book represents an excellent snapshot of the discipline of stylistics
in all its range. As well as theoretical positioning by some key figures in
the field, it covers the main dimensions of cognitive, computational and
discoursal approaches to literary stylistics, and it does not neglect the
practical pedagogy that is the artisanal bedrock of the discipline. There
is valuable work here that showcases the international reach of stylistics."
Professor Peter Stockwell, School of English Studies, University of Nottingham
