9780415214223: The Language of Comics (Intertext)

The Intertext series has been specifically designed to meet the needs of contemporary English Language Studies. Working with Texts: A Core Introduction to Language Analysis (second edition, 2001) is the foundation text, which is complemented by a range of 'satellite' titles. These provide students with hands-on practical experience of textual analysis through special topics, and can be used individually or in conjunction with Working with Texts.
The Language of Comics:

  • highly illustrated with large number of real comic strips
  • provides a history of comics from the end of the nineteenth century to the present
  • explores the 'semiotics of comics', from the interaction between the verbal and the visual and how texts interrelate to the way speech and thought are reported in narrative and point of view
  • makes the case for comics as multi-modal texts and considers future developments in the genre
  • is user friendly and accessible, and provides a full glossary.

About the Author:

Mario Saraceni is Lecturer at Assumption University, Bangkok, Thailand.

Review:

'Its innovative approach and accessibility are some of its great assets. More importantly, the beauty of comics is never lost in the book's serious examination of comics. I am confident that the book will be an informative and pleasurable read to many readers across a number of disciplines.' – Discourse & Society
