Approaches to the Analysis of Literary Discourse.
Ventola, Eija, Ed.
Articles included in this compilation represent functional approaches to literary analysis. Most of these papers were presented at the Sixteenth International Systemics Congress held in Helsinki, Finland, in 1989. The aim of the congress was to establish dialogue between various functional approaches to the theoretical study of language, to educational linguistics, as well as to the study of literary language. The literary analysis papers included in this compilation range from discussions of literary pragmatics, to detailed systemic-functional analyses of literary texts. Papers included are: "Literary Genre and History: Questions from a Literary Pragmaticist for Socio-Semioticians" (Roger D. Sell); "Prose Dialogue and Discourse" (Karen Malcolm); "Dialogue and Discourse in a Nigerian English Discourse" (Femi Akindele); "Semantic Options in the Transitivity System: An Example of Textual Analysis" (Julia Lavid); "Variation in Narrative Structure: A Simple Text vs. an Innovative Work of Art" (Martina Bjorklund and Tuija Virtanen); "Phonological Meanings in Literary Prose Texts and their Translations" (Eija Ventola).
