Language and Verbal Art Revisited: Linguistic Approaches to the Study of Literature

Donna Miller Monica Turci
0/5 ( ratings)
This volume, meant for both specialists and non-specialists, will appeal to both the growing number of scholars working in, and students needing to investigate, the field of literary linguistics, or stylistics. Inspired by Ruqaiya Hasan's conviction that, [] in verbal art the role of language is central. Here language is not as clothing to the body; it IS the body , the papers are on a wide variety of aspects of the language-literature connection, and approach it from diverse perspectives and methodological frameworks, including Systemic Functional Linguistics, pragmatics, corpus linguistics, ethnolinguistics, cultural and translation studies. A wide range of literary genres and world literatures are analyzed, including Shakespeare's plays; modern Austrian authors writing in German ; Perrault's Histoires et contes du temps pass? and their translations by Angela Carter; the Spanish poets of the Generaci?n del '50; Malaysian-Singaporean poets in English; Anglo-American Modernist poets and novelists ; a short story by Marina Warner and Turkish-German narrative by Feridun Zamolu; The Gospel of St. John and Harry Potter. Separate introductions to each of the contributions seek to guide above all the non-specialist reader by describing and comparing the frameworks that the volume comprises. A general introduction diachronically traces key moments in the development of the study of the language of literature seen as socio-cultural practice.
