Product Overview

This refreshingly straightforward and accessible textbook introduces students who might not have a linguistic background, to the study of literary texts. Taking a genre-based approach, Gregoriou provides students with the analytical skills and theoretical approaches they need to interpret the language of literature.
Examining poetry, prose and drama, English Literary Stylistics:
- Introduces the key ideas, theories and developments of stylistics, setting stylistic analysis alongside discussion of the discipline
- Provides worked-through examples on the stylistics of each genre, enabling students to engage with practical stylistic analysis
- Covers recent developments in cognitive stylistics
- Includes useful ideas for projects, guidance on methodology and annotated further reading

This is the ideal accompaniment for any student beginning the study of stylistics as it allows the reader to investigate the effects of literary genres through the structure of language.
