Abstract:

Written over the last thirty years, this collection of Professor Peter Verdonk’s most important work on the stylistics of poetry clearly shows that the stylistics of poetic discourse is a diverse and valuable interdiscipline. Discussing the poetry of Auden, Heaney and Larkin amongst many others, Verdonk covers everything from intrinsic textual meaning and external context in its widest sense to the reader’s cognitive and emotive response to poems. The book will appeal to all students on stylistics and literary linguistics courses, especially those focusing on poetry and poetic language.

“This collection of Peter Verdonk’s articles will be essential reading for anyone interested in poetry and how we interact with, and respond to, the language of poems. Bringing Peter Verdonk’s articles on poetry together into one volume in this way also provides an invaluable resource for students learning the art of the stylistic analysis of poetry.” –  Mick Short, National Teaching Fellow and Professor of English Language and Literature, Lancaster University, UK,

“Every stylistics undergraduate student should read this book, as there is no better model than Verdonk’s to show them how to conduct a sophisticated, erudite and poignant stylistic analysis of poetry. In a clear and informative fashion Verdonk takes you by the hand and shows you the wonders of how literary meaning can be uncovered by means of impeccable linguistic analysis.” –  Michael Burke, Professor of Rhetoric, UC Roosevelt Academy, Utrecht University, The Netherlands,

“The papers in this book trace and define the field of stylistics. They are elegant and exemplary, sharp with insight and possess a beauty of fine analysis. If anyone ever asks for an example of the highest achievements in literary stylistics, simply hand them this book.” –  Peter Stockwell, Professor of Literary Lingusitics, University of Nottingham, UK,

“A perfect guide to a deeper engagement with poetry. An inspiring and beautifully written collection of readings underlining in every chapter how linguistic analysis can illuminate key patterns of meaning across texts and contexts.” –  Ronald Carter, Professor of Modern English Language, University of Nottingham, UK,
