Abstract:

I. A. Richards is an influential figure in literary criticism but has rarely
been thought of as someone who laid the foundations for cognitive stylistics.
This book proposes that Richards was a "protocognitivist".

West argues that Richards anticipated many of the discipline's core aims,
methods and assumptions. The book argues that the roots of cognitive
psychology lie in early twentieth century psychology, when there was a focus
on cognitive processes such as memory and learning, attention, categorisation,
perception and consciousness. It was this cognitive psychology that Richards
drew upon to build a theory of literature and interpretation - which in itself
prefigured cognitive stylistics.

West also suggests that Richards is one of the more influential British
intellectuals of the twentieth century, and that his work is still relevant
today. West argues that cognitive stylistics is not, as Peter Stockwell has
written, a "new science of literature and reading", but rather a discipline
with a history that it continues to deny itself.

This book will appeal to researchers and advanced students in stylistics and
literary studies.
