The aim of this book is to explain style in terms which do not presuppose too extensive an acquaintaince on the part of the reader with linguistic terminology. Its orientation is not basically theoretical. It attempts to provide help in a pragmatic way for those who recognize the importance of language in literature, but who do not know where to start or how to exploit the particular knowledge and skills the possess. The book is designed for sixth formers preparing for the new A level English language exams, but it is also for undergraduates.Vom Verlag:
This book presents an introduction to stylistics for students of literature. It does not presuppose linguistic knowledge, but it approaches literature in a linguistic way. In the first half it looks at the make-up of a sentence in English and how sentence elements are exploited by literary authors. In the second half it looks at the way in which a text is unified by elements beyond the sentence. The conclusion exemplifies the theory explained in the previous chapters.
