'Linguistic Criticism' acts as a useful introduction to the critical study of language. It focuses mainly on literary texts, but provides a framework which can be applied to all kinds of linguistic analysis and criticism. Various analytical techniques are described and explained in a clear and understandable manner. At the end of each chapter, Fowler provides references and suggestions for further reading, which is particularly useful for those who want to study the topics in greater depth.
Subjects such as defamiliarization, context, point of view, world-view and the role of the reader are explored systematically in reference to the linguistic devices that create these effects, proving useful for both literature and language students alike.
