Essais de Stylistique (Essays on Stylistics).
Guiraud, Pierre
This French text of selected articles, lectures, and writings from Bally to Jakobson presents a typology of literary styles, complementing an introductory book on the theory and readings in stylistics by dealing with the problems and methods of stylistic analysis. Seeking to arrive at a description of the inner structure of literary texts, it develops a synthesis of structural and traditional linguistics, which is applied to the analysis of various literary tests. Major chapters include: (1) problems and methods: the form and function of language and style, and linguistics and literary criticism; (2) vocabulary and the field of stylistics: excerpts and discussion of Baudelaire, Mallarme, and Valery; (3) grammar: time, space, and literature; and (4) metrics and "expressivity": semiology and poetic expression, the esthetics of French verse, and the metrics of Verlaine's "Romances sans paroles." An index and bibliography are included. For companion documents see FL 001 811 and FL 001 812. (RL)
