FOREWORD

Seminars in Style is a book of practice which can be used alongside or after the theoretical course of English Stylistics. Its aim is to help students acquire and use the knowledge and techniques necessary for the stylistic analysis of a text, i.e. find and interpret language phenomena of different levels of the language structure, which carry some additional information of the emotive, logical or evaluative types, all serving to enrich, deepen and clarify the text. The book is divided into five chapters, each one containing a brief theoretical survey, questions checking the students’ comprehension, and exercises. The latter are excerpts of varying length taken from the prose of XIX–XX cc. written in English. The length and complexity of the fragments for analysis grow by the end of each chapter. A sample of analysis is offered at the end of the book. There are also texts for comprehensive stylistic analysis presupposing understanding of and free orientation in the material of the previous chapters. The book ends with a list of the authors, whose works have been used for illustration.
