Stylistics A practical coursebook
Using a wide range of twentieth-century literary prose, this book is an introduction to the techniques of stylistic analysis. The book also serves as a practical introduction to basic descriptive grammar from clause to text structure.The book is divided into five chapters, which are subdivided into sections. Each chapter corresponds to a major area of grammar, while each section focuses on a particular feature of the area. Sections are self-contained, with a definition of the feature, a text for analysis in which use of the feature is significant, a solution, and a verdict. Within each chapter, the higher numbered sections are more complex. Chapters 1, 2, 3, 4 are also in increasing order of complexity. However, we have placed Chapter 5 at the end, even though vocabulary is arguably the most easily grasped topic, because it is the most limited area linguistically and therefore least rewarding. Although the chapters and sections get increasingly complex, there is no need for teachers to follow our ordering within or between blocks. One method which we have both used with success is to group three or four texts on a similar point (for example, pronouns), give them all to a class, assign one text to a group of students within the class for detailed analysis, and end the class with the groups discussing each text in turn. The teacher can begin with an introduction to the area being studied if appropriate, but we have found that it often pays to assume knowledge on the part of students: they quickly come to understand what is being looked at from the definitions, and the texts.
