This is the first book to present an account of literary meaning and effects
drawing on our best understanding of mind and language in the form of a
Cognitive Grammar. The contributors provide exemplary analyses of a range of
literature from science fiction, dystopia, absurdism and graphic novels to the
poetry of Wordsworth, Hopkins, Sassoon, Balassi, and Dylan Thomas, as well as
Shakespeare, Chaucer, Barrett Browning, Whitman, Owen and others. The
application of Cognitive Grammar allows the discussion of meaning,
translation, ambience, action, reflection, multimodality, empathy, experience
and literariness itself to be conducted in newly valid ways. With a Foreword
by the creator of Cognitive Grammar, Ronald Langacker, and an Afterword by the
cognitive scientist Todd Oakley, the book represents the latest advance in
literary linguistics, cognitive poetics and literary critical practice.
