Description
Information
Investigating Dickens' Style aims to provide new and profound insights into Dickens' language and style through the corpus-based study of collocation. A resource for Dickens' and literary stylistics researchers, the study makes use of the 4.6 million-word Dickens corpus to examine in detail Dickens' linguistic innovation, and offers a nuanced understanding of his use of language to achieve stylistic ends. At the centre of the study is a close analysis of the two narratives in Bleak House, read as a focal point for consideration of Dickens' stylistic development through his whole writing life. This book puts forward a new corpus-driven approach to the study of the language and style of literary texts.
