Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Demonstrates how form in language helps determine the meaning of texts by describing verse and prose as structures, the components of which are primarily linguistic, and by seeing the form of those components as part of the content. Continues Shapiro's (Slavic languages, Brown U.) general line of research contributing to the cognitive study of representative texts and examples from Russian, English, Romance, Japanese, and ancient Greek literature.
