Title: Phantom Sentences
Subtitle: Essays in linguistics and literature presented to Ann Banfield
Edited By: RobertS.Kawashima
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/Index.cfm?vLang=E&vSiteID=4&vSiteName=BookDetail%2Ecfm&VID=11222
Description:

Ann Banfield - professor in the Department of English at the University of
California, Berkeley - is best known for her groundbreaking contributions
to narrative theory. Working within the paradigm of generative linguistics,
she argued that the language of fiction is characterized by two
'unspeakable sentences', i.e., sentences that do not properly occur in the
spoken language: the sentence of 'pure narration' and the sentence of
'represented speech and thought' (style indirect libre or erlebte Rede).
More recently, Banfield offered a major reconsideration of the novels of
Virginia Woolf and modernism in light of the philosophy of knowledge
developed by G. E. Moore and Bertrand Russell, and appropriated by Roger
Fry in his critical analyses of impressionism and post-impressionism.

The essays gathered here pay tribute to Banfield by addressing those
disciplines and topics most closely related to her work, including:
narrative theory and pragmatics, the philosophy of language and knowledge,
generative syntax, meter and phonology, and modernism.
