2 - 4 weeks availability
The aim of this book is to explain style in terms which do not presuppose too extensive an acquaintaince on the part of the reader with linguistic terminology. Its orientation is not basically theoretical. It attempts to provide help in a pragmatic way for those who recognize the importance of language in literature, but who do not know where to start or how to exploit the particular knowledge and skills the possess. The book is designed for sixth formers preparing for the new A level English language exams, but it is also for undergraduates.
