Mastering the Language of Literature provides students of English Literature with a clear guide to the linguistic analysis of literary texts. Drawing on modern linguistics and traditional approaches, it shows how the study of language provides valuable tools for literary criticism. Important linguistic concepts are explained, and there are sections on Phonology, Lexis and Syntax, supported by examples from a wide range of texts. The book complements and extends the traditional close reading approach of Practical Criticism, and introduces students to an exciting and fast-growing area of advanced literary studies.
