The Taming of the Text : Explorations in Language, Literature and Culture Hardback

Edited by Willie van Peer

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Literary Theory series

Description

The contributors of this text, first published in 1988, provide a dynamic view of the social functioning of texts, taking account of linguistic, literary and cultural elements.

They bring together innovative perspectives on literary analysis and theory, on pragmatics and discourse analysis, as well as on text linguistics and reception theory.

Various text types are examined, and the editor introduces each chapter in order to draw them all together to make a fascinating and cohesive whole.
