The State of Stylistics contains a broad collection of papers that investigate how stylistics has evolved throughout the late 20th and early 21st centuries. In so doing, it considers how stylisticians currently perceive their own respective fields of enquiry. It also defines what stylistics is, and how we might use it in research and teaching."This book represents an excellent snapshot of the discipline of stylistics in all its range. As well as theoretical positioning by some key figures in the field, it covers the main dimensions of cognitive, computational and discoursal approaches to literary stylistics, and it does not neglect the practical pedagogy that is the artisanal bedrock of the discipline. There is valuable work here that showcases the international reach of stylistics." Professor Peter Stockwell, School of English Studies, University of Nottingham
