Language and Verbal Art Revisited free pdf This volume, meant for both specialists and non-specialists, will appeal to both the growing number of scholars working in, and students needing to investigate, the field of literary linguistics, or stylistics. Inspired by Ruqaiya Hasan's conviction that, [...] in verbal art the role of language is central. Here language is not as clothing to the body- it IS the body." (1985/1989: 91), the papers are on a wide variety of aspects of the language-literature connection, and approach it from diverse perspectives and methodological frameworks, including Systemic Functional Linguistics, pragmatics, corpus linguistics, ethnolinguistics, cultural and translation studies. A wide range of literary genres and world literatures are analyzed, including Shakespeare's plays- modern Austrian authors writing in German (e.g., Thomas Bernhard)- Perrault's "Histoires et contes du temps passe" and their translations by Angela Carter- the Spanish poets of the Generacion del '50- Malaysian-Singaporean poets in English- Anglo-American Modernist poets (Frost, Stevens, Pound and Lawrence) and novelists (Woolf and Conrad)- a short story by Marina Warner and Turkish-German narrative by Feridun Zamo lu- "The Gospel of St. John" and "Harry Potter". Separate introductions to each of the contributions seek to guide above all the non-specialist reader by describing and comparing the frameworks that the volume comprises. A general introduction diachronically traces key moments in the development of the study of the language of literature seen as socio-cultural practice.
