The Routledge Handbook of Stylistics

The Routledge Handbook of Stylistics
The Routledge Handbook of Stylistics (Routledge Handbooks in English Language Studies) by Michael Burke
The Routledge Handbook of Stylistics provides a comprehensive introduction and reference point to key areas in the field of stylistics. The four sections of the volume encompass a wide range of approaches from classical rhetoric to cognitive neuroscience and cover core issues that include:
    • historical perspectives centring on rhetoric, formalism and functionalism
    • the elements of stylistic analysis that include the linguistic levels of foregrounding, relevance theory, conversation analysis, narrative, metaphor, speech acts, speech and thought presentation  and point of view

    • current areas of ‘hot topic’ research, such as cognitive poetics, corpus stylistics and feminist/critical stylistics
    • emerging and future trends including the stylistics of multimodality, creative writing, hypertext fiction and neuroscience
Each of the thirty-two chapters provides: an introduction to the subject; an overview of the history of the topic; an analysis of the main current and critical issues; a section with recommendations for practice, and a discussion of possible future trajectory of the subject.
