The Language of Fiction
The Language of Fiction:
- asks what makes literature? How does it work? How do we read it?
- explores varying literary styles and authorship
- deals with openings, point of view, speech, gender and pop fiction
- includes a wide-range of literary extracts, from the classics of Hardy and Austen, to the contemporary works of Raymond Carver, Angela Carter, Nick Hornby, Irvine Welsh
The Routledge INTERTEXT series aims to develop readers’ understanding of how texts work. It does this by showing some of the designs and patterns in the language from which they are made, by placing texts within the contexts in which they occur, and by exploring relationships between them.
The series consists of a foundation text, Working with Texts: A core introduction to language analysis, which looks at language aspects essential for the analysis of texts, and a range of satellite texts. These apply aspects of language to a particular topic area in more detail. They complement the core text and can also be used alone, providing the user has the foundation skills furnished by the core text.
