Title: Stylistics and Shakespeare's Language
Subtitle: Transdisciplinary Approaches
Edited By: Mireille Ravassat
Jonathan Culpeper
URL: http://www.continuumbooks.com/books/detail.aspx?BookId=158639&SearchType=Basic
Description:

'This is a book full of fresh and illuminating perspectives and methods. It
makes you realize the study of Shakespeare's language is only just
beginning.' David Crystal, Honorary Professor of Linguistics at Bangor
University, UK

'A welcome addition to the still relatively meagre output of books on
Shakespeare's style. The chapters by different contributors take a fresh
and insightful look at vocabulary, metre and rhetoric in the light of
recent advances in stylistics.' Katie Wales, Special Professor, School of
English, University of Nottingham, UK

This innovative volume testifies to the current revived interest in
Shakespeare’s language and style and opens up new and captivating vistas of
investigation. Transcending old boundaries between literary and linguistic
studies, this engaging collaborative book comes up with an original array
of theoretical approaches and new findings. The chapters in the collection
capture a rich diversity of points of view and cover such fields as
lexicography, versification, dramaturgy, rhetorical analyses, cognitive and
computational corpus-based stylistic studies, offering a holistic vision of
Shakespeare’s uses of language. The perspective is deliberately broad,
confronting ideas and visions at the intersection of various techniques of
textual investigation. Such novel explorations of Shakespeare’s
multifarious artistry and amazing inventiveness in his use of language will
cater for a broad range of readers, from undergraduates, postgraduates,
scholars and researchers, to poetry and theatre lovers alike.
