A Linguistic History of English Poetry by Richard Bradford
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


What is poetry? How does it work, and how do we make sense of it? Bringing together the emphases and techniques of modern linguistics and literary criticism, the author applies these to a range of poems from Shakespeare to the present day. He reveals how poetic structure and poetic signification have changed since the sixteenth century, and offers new interpretive models and methods for criticizing poetry. Particular emphasis is placed on the texts' relation to literary history, and to their social, cultural and aesthetic context. The book contains detailed readings of individual texts, worked examples and exercises, and a glossary, and is ideal for sixth-form and undergraduate courses in English, Stylistics and Linguistics.
