9780415290036: The Language of Fiction: Essays in Criticism and Verbal Analysis of the English Novel (Volume 51)

Language of Fiction was the first book of criticism by the renowned novelist and critic David Lodge. His uniquely informed perspective - he was already the author of three successful novels at the time of its first publication in 1966 - and lucid exposition meant that the work proved a landmark of literary criticism, not least because it succeeded in communicating a radically new vision of English literature to a readership that reached well beyond the bounds of the academy. Now reissued with a new foreword, this major work from the pen of one of England's finest living writers is essential reading for all those who care about the creation and appreciation of literature.

About the Author:

David Lodge (1935-). Novelist and critic, whose many publications include Small World and Nice Work, both shortlisted for the Booker Prize for Fiction.

Review:

'Perhaps because he is a good novelist himself, Mr Lodge's subjection of various writers to detailed linguistic analysis is illuminating and exciting.' - Daily Telegraph
