The Modes of Modern Writing Metaphor, Metonymy, and the Typology of Modern Literature.

£17.99

Product description

In this book David Lodge establishes a fundamental polarity between metaphoric (analogous, symbolist, lyric) and metonymic (contiguous, realistic, epic) techniques of expression, as a basis for confronting some of the fundamental questions of literary criticism: what is literature? what is literary realism? what is the relationship of form and content in the literary text? what principles underlie the oscillations of literary taste and fashion, especially in the modern period? The book is a bold and original synthesis of Anglo-American and European critical approaches, illustrated by an abundance of acute and meticulously detailed analyses.

Slight discolouration to edges of pages. Corners show small signs of wear. Writing inside front cover. In very good condition for reading or study.
