Title: Stylistics
Written By: Lesley Jeffries
Dan McIntyre
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/gb/knowledge/isbn/item2713102/?site_locale=en_GB
Description:

Stylistics is the linguistic study of style in language. It aims to account for how
texts project meaning, how readers construct meaning and why readers respond
to texts in the way that they do. This book is an introduction to stylistics that
locates it firmly within the traditions of linguistics. Organised to reflect the
historical development of stylistics from its origins in Russian formalism, the
book covers key principles such as foregrounding theory, as well as more
recent developments in cognitive stylistics. It includes an examination of both
literary and non-literary texts, and substantial coverage of methodologies for
stylistic analysis. Throughout the book, the emphasis is on the practicalities of
producing stylistic analyses that are objective, replicable and falsifiable.
Comprehensive in its coverage and assuming no prior knowledge of the topic,
Stylistics will be essential reading for undergraduate and graduate students new
to this fascinating area of language study.
