Linguistic criticism by Roger Fowler( Book )

40 editions published between 1986 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,012 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A particularly fruitful development in literary studies has been the application of ideas drawn from linguistics. Precise analytical methods help the practical criticism of texts, while at the same time the theory of language has illuminated literary theory. Linguistic Criticism is an accessible introduction to this often confusing subject. Fowler sets out clearly and simply a variety of analytical techniques whose application he demonstrates in discussions of a wide range of texts drawn from fiction, poetry, and drama. He concentrates on structures that relate literature to ordinary language, stressing the importance of the reader's everyday language skills. This second edition has clarified and expanded sections on the role of the reader in literary criticism and includes more twentieth-century texts and examples

36 editions published between 1971 and 2018 in English and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Language of Literature, first published in 1971, Roger Fowler argues that the vitality and centrality of the verbal dimension of literature, and, read as a whole, the papers in this collection imply a consistent point of view on language in literature. The author focuses on the continuity of language in literature with language outside literature, on its cultural appropriateness and adjustment, and on its power to create aesthetic patterns and to organise concepts, to make fictions. This title will be of interest to students of literary theory

The language of George Orwell by Roger Fowler( Book )

16 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George Orwell is best known for his two late books, Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four: the former an allegory of revolution betrayed told in a beast fable of the purest simplicity of style; the latter a violent and pessimistic nightmare of life under totalitarianism. He wrote much more, however: a dozen books in all, including novels, plus documentary works, and hundreds of essays, reviews and other writings. He was a craftsman in language, with his own strong personal voice and also a command of a whole range of literary and journalistic styles. Orwell was accomplished in many shades of realist writing, from documentary through naturalism to surrealism; he mastered picturesque and pastoral styles as well as trenchant parody; and he was adept at rendering the inner life of thought and feeling." "The Language of George Orwell is the first detailed study of Orwell's language and style. Drawing on contemporary critical theory and the analytic methods of linguistic criticism, Roger Fowler sheds new light on Orwell's achievement as a literary artist who engaged passionately with the life and ideas of his time. This novel approach, which will be of great interest to students and to others who wish to know Orwell's work better, is accessible to those without a linguistic training; technical terms are kept to a minimum, and are carefully explained."--Jacket
