Title: The Art of English: Literary Creativity
Edited By: Sharon Goodman
Kieran O'Halloran
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=140398560X
Description:

This volume provides a critical examination of texts which can be
considered 'literary.' What distinguishes some texts as 'art'? How do we
recognize literary creativity? To answer questions such as these, the book
ranges across creative texts produced for public consumption: from poetry,
drama and fiction to performance art and online literature. It provides a
lively and accessible introduction to stylistic, semiotic and multimodal
analysis drawing on work in Literature and Media Studies, Performance
Studies, Linguistics and Anthropology.
