Pragmatics of Fiction (Hardcover)
About this item
This handbook provides a state-of-the-art account of a broad range of pragmatic research on fictional language, covering not only written genres, such as novels, short stories and poetry, but also drama and telecinematic discourse. It is concerned with the ways in which communication is depicted in narratives or enacted in plays and with the larger communicative context of the author, dramatist or scriptwriter and his or her audience.
