A Linguistic History of English Poetryby Richard Bradford
Pub. Date: 11/15/1993
Publisher: Taylor & Francis
By bringing together the emphases and techniques of modern linguistics and literary criticism and applying them to a range of poetry, A Linguistic History of English Poetry argues that poetry is uniquely and intrinsically different from other linguistic discourses and non-linguistic sign systems. A variety of approaches, including New Criticism, Formalism, Structuralism and Poststructuralism, are deployed to show how poetic structure and poetic signification have transformed since the 16th century and interpretive models and methods are offered for criticizing poetry.
