The Languages of Literature : Some Linguistic Contributions to Criticism, Hardback Book

The Languages of Literature : Some Linguistic Contributions to Criticism Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Literary Theory series

Description

In The Language of Literature, first published in 1971, Roger Fowler argues that the vitality and centrality of the verbal dimension of literature, and, read as a whole, the papers in this collection imply a consistent point of view on language in literature.

The author focuses on the continuity of language in literature with language outside literature, on its cultural appropriateness and adjustment, and on its power to create aesthetic patterns and to organise concepts, to make fictions.

This title will be of interest to students of literary theory.
