Book description

Stylistics has become the most common name for a discipline which at various times has been termed 'literary linguistics', 'rhetoric', 'poetics', 'literary philology' and 'close textual reading'. This Handbook is the definitive account of the field, drawing on linguistics and related subject areas such as psychology, sociology, anthropology, educational pedagogy, computational methods, literary criticism and critical theory. Placing stylistics in its intellectual and international context, each chapter includes a detailed illustrative example and case study of stylistic practice, with arguments and methods open to examination, replication and constructive critical discussion. As an accessible guide to the theory and practice of stylistics, it will equip the reader with a clear understanding of the ethos and principles of the discipline, as well as with the capacity and confidence to engage in stylistic analysis.


‘Students and scholars of linguistics and literature, who are interested in the past, the present and the future of stylistics, will find this Handbook an invaluable resource. Offering informative, insightful and engaging discussions of a wide range of topics, this exciting new volume represents state-of-the-art research into the theory and practice of stylistics.'

Dan Shen - Changjiang Professor of English, Peking University

‘A much-needed, rigorous and integrative account of style. Comprehensively demonstrates the textual, critical and cultural analysis of creativity in language and literature.’

Nikolas Coupland - Copenhagen University and University of Technology, Sydney
