The function of language that will be focused on in this book is how it is used in the creation of literary texts. That said, many students find writing about the language of literature difficult. It is one thing to comment on what was written about, quite another to write about how it was written. This book will help you to analyse literary texts by looking at the ways in which language has been used intheir formation.
Each chapter contains a number of exercises. When the exercise introduces a new idea, there will usually be suggestions for answer immediately following. When the exercise checks to see if a point has been understood, suggestions for answer can be found at the end of the book.
