Language Through Literature provides a definitive introduction to the English language through the medium of English literature. Through the use of illustrations from poetry, prose and drama, this book offers a lively guide to important concepts and techniques in English language study.

Among the many topics covered in the book are the form and meaning of words, the structure of narrative discourses and the organization of dialogue and conversation. Each chapter explores a specific aspect of the modern English language using a combination of exposition and practical activities. Each chapter also provides points for further discussion and includes project work for use individually, or as part of a group.

Readers will find the author's selection and presentation of topics helpful, as Paul Simpson progressively widens the scope of topics from single words to the structure of whole conversations. Language Through Literature is designed for the non-specialist who is new to the study of the English language and will be particularly relevant to anyone interested in the in the relationship between the English language and English literature.

'A book that has long been needed, collecting together relatively recent linguistic ideas with the most useful of the older work and presenting them accessibly, without the assumption that the reader either has a sophisticated command of grammatical terms or that tutors will necessarily want to subscribe to either a formal or a functional approach to language study. There is no doubt that this book will be a major contribution to the pool of textbooks upon which stylistics teaching can draw.' - Judy Delin, The Linguist |
