6 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the implications and consequences, both theoretically and practically, of four propositions: (1) discourse is produced in context; (2) discourse is primarily a reaction to a precedent action; (3) social interactions in which language is used to construct reality are performed in a variety of roles; and (4) the features of discourse are shaped by the fundamental roles of the participant and the spectator. The 12 chapters are as follows: (1) Context; a Composing Class; (2) Generative Frame: Actions and Reactions; (3) Generative Frame: Varieties of Textuality; (4) Applications: Syntax as a Notch on the Evolutionary Ladder; (5) Generative Frame: The Possibilities of Narrative; (6) Generative Frame: Being a Participant, Being a Spectator; (7) Applications: Writers as Participants; (8) Applications: Writers as Spectators; (9) Generative Frame: Role; (10) Applications: Student Writers in Role; (11) Generative Frame: Familiarization and Defamiliarization; and (12) Overview: The Shape of the Semester.

6 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Clare produced some of English poetry's most poignant and glorious lyrics. Writing not as an observer of nature but from an intimate knowledge of the wheatfields, hedgerows, and ditches of his village in Northamptonshire, he described animals, insects, trees, rivers, sunlight, and clouds with sublime sensitivity. But as enclosures and "improvements" came in the early nineteenth century, dismembering the rural landscape, his later poems became infused with a sense of disorientation and loss, and scattered with threads of madness. Clare's genius has been rediscovered by fellow poets in every generation since his death, from Dylan Thomas to Ted Hughes to Seamus Heaney
