0 Reseñas
In Style in Fiction, Geoffrey N. Leech and Michael H. Short demonstrate how this method of analysis can be applied to prose. Writing for both students of English language and English literature, they describe the ways in which the techniques of linguistic analysis and literary criticism can be combined, and illuminated, through the linguistic study of literary style. Drawing mainly on the prose fiction of the last 150 years, their practical analysis of prose texts and extracts will lead to a deeper perception of modes of literary expression. Since its first publication in 1981, Style in Fiction has become well established as a course textbook. It not only provides a clear and fresh survey of theoretical developments in the linguistic study of prose style, but has several features of especial help to the student.
