A Bibliography of Bibliographies Appearing in Style, 1967-1994

Article excerpt

Virtually every critical article published is bibliographical to some degree, and the earliest and latest volumes of Style in particular contain essays which are bibliographical - or, as Karl Kroeber characterized them in a critique of Style published in 1970, "reportorial" (295) - to much greater degrees. The first article in Style 1.1, for example, is Richard W. Bailey's survey of "Current Trends in the Analysis of Style," and other early numbers include essays on such topics as "Studies of Style in Czechoslovakia and Poland" (3 essays in 2.2) or "German Research on Style in the Romance Languages and Literatures" (3.2); numbers 26.4 and 27.4 similarly feature a number of substantial bibliographical essays. Among the most extensive of the more recent bibliographical essays are William Baker's series on "Recent Work in Critical Theory," published annually in the fourth number of volumes 24-26. I mention these valuable items here primarily because they do not appear in the following bibliography. I have included only reference bibliographies proper, whether annotated or enumerative (the indexes to the contents of each volume found at the back of the final number each year are not counted). Coverage is intended to be comprehensive from the first number of Style through the contents of this number (28.4). Having discovered a truly unexpected diversity in these bibliographies, I have abandoned a series of increasingly tortuous organizational schemes and simply listed them in the sequence of their appearance in Style, producing what I hope is a satisfactory browsing order. Let me shamelessly remind our readers that back issues are available from our Business Affairs Editor.
