Stylistics, in parallel with similar trends in language studies and literary theory, has widened its scope of investigation from a close reading of texts to considering texts in context. This broadening out has considerably increased the literary critical potential for stylistics. This book makes new insights from linguistic and literary scholarship accessible to students in their daily practice of reading, analysing and evaluating literary texts. The twelve chapters are written by experts in the field. They provide a firm foundation for the development of language and context-based literary criticism, allowing students to increase their creative responsiveness to the interplay between text and context, and between language and social situation.
