about

Using a wide range of twentieth-century literary prose Laura Wright and Jonathan Hope provide an `interactive' introduction to the techniques of stylistic analysis. Divided up into five sections; the noun phrase, the verb phrase, the clause, text structure and vocabulary, the book also provides an introduction to the basics of descriptive grammar for beginning students.
* Presumes no prior linguistic knowledge
* Provides a comprehensive glossary of terms
* Adaptable: designed to be used in a variety of classroom contexts
* Introduces students to an enormous range of 20th century literature from James Joyce to Roddy Doyle
A practical coursebook rather than a survey account of stylistics as a discipline, the book provides over forty opportunities for hands-on stylistic analysis. For each linguistic feature under discussion the reader is offered a definition, a text for analysis, exercises and tasks, in addition to a suggested solution.
Stylistics: A Practical Coursebookis genuinely `student friendly' and will be an invaluable tool for all beginning undergraduates and A-level students of language and literature.
Laura Wright is a bestselling American author of the Mark of the Vampire series, as well as the Bayou Heat and No Ring Required Series. She grew up in Minnesota and has been in Los Angeles for a while, writing. She was also an accomplished competitive ballroom dancer.
