Title: Contemporary Stylistics
Edited By: Marina Lambrou

URL: http://www.continuumbooks.com
Series Title: Contemporary Studies in Linguistics
Description:

'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… 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
