Title: Beyond Cognitive Metaphor Theory
Subtitle: Perspectives on Literary Metaphor
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415888288/
Series Title: Routledge Studies in Rhetoric and Stylistics
Description:

In this innovative collection, an international group of scholars come together to
discuss literary metaphors and cognitive metaphor theory. The volume's goals
are three-fold. The first aim of the book is to present some recent approaches to
metaphor which have no immediate connection with cognitive metaphor theory
and have developed independently of it. While the cognitive approach has
become the leading paradigm in the English speaking world, elsewhere (in
Europe) rhetorical, semantic, and logical models have remained in use and
continue to be elaborated. These models have so far had little international
exposure. Their inclusion in this study is meant to provide a balance to the
cognitive paradigm and to open up a possible discussion of the advantages and
disadvantages of cognitive metaphor theory for the analysis of literary texts.
The second aim of the collection is to illustrate a range of successful
applications of the new cognitive models to literary texts. And, the third aim of
the study is to provide an assessment of cognitive metaphor theory from a
literary point of view.
