Abstract

Now that empirical research methods are getting their due recognition in the spheres of literature and other media, and that the field of stylistics has also greatly developed, this volume, published within John Benjamins’ well-established Linguistic Approaches to Literature series, is really welcome. The tradition has been to see stylistics as an area of interface between language and literature. As a result, unfortunately, there are not enough studies that look at what happens with actual readers as they engage with texts, so it is really useful to have a comprehensive look at readers’ experiences with texts of various kinds. Where textbooks (for example, Leech, Short, Semino and Culpeper, Verdonk, Burke or Simpson, to name just a few) introduce students to the linguistic description and interpretation of textual features of literary works, Style and Reader Response instead familiarizes readers with the evidence-based approach to the real effects of literature.
