A Little History of Literature
8
 
 

A Little History of Literature

This "little history” takes on a very big subject: the glorious span of literature from Greek myth to graphic novels, from The Epic of Gilgamesh to Harry Potter. John Sutherland is perfectly suited to the task. He has researched, taught, and written on virtually every area of literature, and his infectious passion for books and reading has defined his own life. Now he guides young readers and the grown-ups in their lives on an entertaining journey "through the wardrobe” to a greater awareness of how literature from across the world can transport us and help us to make sense of what it means to be human.

Language in Literature: Style and Foregrounding
7
 
 
Language in Literature: Style and ForegroundingOver a period of over forty years, Geoffrey Leech has made notable contributions to the field of literary stylistics, using the interplay between linguistic form and literary function as a key to the ‘mystery’ of how a text comes to be invested with artistic potential.
In this book, seven earlier papers and articles, read previously only by a restricted audience, have been brought  together with four new chapters, the whole volume showing a continuity of approach across a period when all too often literary and linguistic studies have appeared to drift further apart.

Literature, Theory, History

In this interdisciplinary work that ranges from the ancients through the Renaissance to the present, Jonathan Hart examines systems, law, theatre, nature, stereotype, otherness, authority, new historicism, deconstruction, feminism, reading, interpretation, poetry, and poetics. The book considers crucial topics and controversies involving the field of Comparative Literature, including subjectivity, Bartolomé de Las Casas, and globalization. Regardless of the period, this towering study assumes that meaning, genre, character, language, and structure are principal matters for debate.
