Language and literary structure

the linguistic analysis of form in verse and narrative


Description

Fabb offers a new linguistic approach to how metre and rhythm work in poetry based on pragmatic theory, providing a pragmatic explanation of formal ambiguity and indeterminacy and their aesthetic effects. He also uses linguistics to examine the experience of poetry. Language and Literary Structure will be welcomed by students and researchers in linguistics, literary theory and stylistics."--Jacket.
