Abstract:

Please note: This is a new version of a previously announced book.

Written by internationally renowned researchers in stylistics, this volume
aims to provide a snapshot of current research and innovations in the field
of stylistics.

Contemporary Stylistics presents a comprehensive survey of the current
state of the integrated study of language and literature. Written by
internationally renowned researchers in stylistics, this volume of twenty
chapters provides a showcase for the range of approaches and practices
which form modern stylistics: from cognitive poetics to corpus linguistics,
from explorations of mind-style and spoken discourse in narrative to the
workings of viewpoint in lyric poetry, from word-meanings to the meanings
and emotions of literary worlds, and more. Each chapter is introduced and
set in context by a key figure in stylistics.

The book represents the best of current stylistics practice, including the
traditions, roots and rigour of the discipline. This one volume reference
will be invaluable to students and researchers in stylistics.

'This is a lively selection of contributions, on a wide range of texts
(fiction, plays, and poetry) and drawing on a remarkable diversity of
theoretical commitments, from twenty of the most talented newer or younger
academics engaged in language-oriented analyses of literature. Each essay
in turn is usefully introduced by an established academic in the same
field. This format, in which an older author sponsors a newer one while
being given the chance to point out differences of view, lends both a
gracious formality and a spirit of collegial dialogism to the collection.
For anyone who wants to see what issues and arguments fascinate and
inspire some of the exciting new generation of stylisticians, this is an
excellent place to look.'
Michael Toolan, Professor of Applied English Linguistics, University of
Birmingham, UK

"The range of texts analysed is excellent, from Dickens to Bridget Jones,
and unlike many edited collections in stylistics, the essays do not just
analyse novels or poetry; there is a good spread here across literary
genres. The chapters give a real insight into the richness of approaches
available today within stylistics research; this book should be required
reading on many literary linguistics courses."
Professor Sarah Mills, Sheffield Hallam University, UK
