Style in Fiction A Linguistic Introduction to English Fictional Prose






Edition:  2
Publisher:  Prentice Hall, E S L Department
Summary: â€˜Stylistics' is the study of language in the service of literary ends, and in Style in Fiction, Geoffrey Leech and Mick Short demonstrate how stylistic analysis can be applied to novels and stories. Writing for both students of English language and English literature, they show the practical ways in which linguistic analysis and literary appreciation can be combined, and illuminated, through the study of literary sty...le. Drawing mainly on major works of fiction of the last 150 years, their practical and insightful examination of style through texts and extracts leads to a deeper understanding of how prose writers achieve their effects through language. Since its first publication in 1981, Style in Fictionhas established itself as a key textbook in its field, selling nearly 30,000 copies. Now, in this revised edition, the authors have added substantial new material, including two completely new concluding chapters. These provide an extensive, up-to-date survey of developments in the field over the past 25 years, and apply the methods presented in earlier chapters to an analysis of an entire short story. The ‘Further Reading' section and the bibliographical references have also been thoroughly updated. In 2005 Style in Fictionwas awarded the 25th Anniversary Prize by PALA (The Poetics and Linguistics Association) as the most influential book published in the field of stylistics 1980. Further proof, if proof were needed, that Style in Fictionremains a classic guide to its discipline. Professor Geoffrey Leechis Professor Emeritus of English Linguistics at Lancaster University.
