Title: The Language and Literature Reader
Edited By: Ronald Carter

Description:

The Language and Literature Reader is an invaluable resource for students
of English literature, language, and linguistics. Bringing together the
most significant work in the field with integrated editorial material, this
Reader is a structured and accessible tool for the student and scholar.

Divided into three sections, Foundations, Developments and New Directions,
the Reader provides an overview of the discipline from the early stages in
the 1960s and 70s, through the new theories and practices of the1980s and
90s, to the most recent and contemporary work in the field. Each article
contains a brief introduction by the editors situating it in the context of
developing work in the discipline and glossing it in terms of the section
and of the book as a whole. The final section concludes with a ‘history and
manifesto’, written by the editors, which places developments in the area
of stylistics within a brief history of the field and offers a polemical
perspective on the future of a growing and influential discipline.
