Rocío Montoro, Beatrix Busse & Nina Nørgaard

Stylistics is the study of the ways in which meaning is created and shaped through language in literature and in other types of text.  Key Terms in Stylistics provides the reader with a comprehensive overview of the field, along with sections that explain relevant terms, concepts and key thinkers listed from A to Z.

The book comprises entries on different stylistic approaches to text, including feminist, cognitive, corpus and multimodal stylistics.  There is coverage of key thinkers and their work as well as of central terms and concepts.  It ends with a comprehensive bibliography of key texts.

The book is written in an accessible manner, explaining difficult concepts in a straightforward way.  It will appeal to both beginner and upper-level students working in the interface between language, linguistics and literature.
