Stylistics: A Practical Coursebook

Synopsis

Using a wide range of twentieth-century literary prose Laura Wright and Jonathan Hope provide an 'interactive' introduction to the techniques of stylistic analysis. Divided up into five sections; the noun phrase, the verb phrase, the clause, text structure and vocabulary, the book also provides an introduction to the basics of descriptive grammar for beginning students.* Presumes no prior linguistic knowledge* Provides a comprehensive glossary of terms* Adaptable: designed to be used in a variety of classroom contexts* Introduces students to an enormous range of 20th century literature from James Joyce to Roddy DoyleA practical coursebook rather than a survey account of stylistics as a discipline, the book provides over forty opportunities for hands-on stylistic analysis. For each linguistic feature under discussion the reader is offered a definition, a text for analysis, exercises and tasks, in addition to a suggested solution. Stylistics: A Practical Coursebook is genuinely 'student friendly' and will be an invaluable tool for all beginning undergraduates and A-level students of language and literature.
