Book Information

   

Title: The Language of Comics
Written By: Mario Saraceni
Series Title: Intertext
Description:

The Intertext series has been specifically designed to meet the needs of contemporary English Language Studies. Working with Texts: A core introduction to language analysis (second edition, 2001) is the foundation text, which is complemented by a range of 'satellite' titles. These provide students with hands-on practical experience of textual analysis through special topics and can be used individually or in conjunction with Working with Texts.

The Language of Comics:

*includes a large number of real comics, from individual frames to full comic strips
*provides a history of comics from the end of the nineteenth century to the present
*explores the "semiotics of comics," from the interaction between the verbal and the visual and how texts interrelate to the way speech and thought are reported in narrative and point of view
*makes the case for comics as multimodal texts and considers future developments in the genre
*is user-friendly and accessible, and provides a full glossary.
