145 indexed pages. Linguistics and the Novel breaks new ground in the criticism of ?ction. Modern critics agree that novels are primarily verbal creations ~ and the contemporary novel reflects this emphasis by drawing attention to its own linguistic techniques - but Roger Fowler ‘s book is the first serious attempt to apply linguistic methods to the structure of?ction. He demonstrates the relevance of linguistics in two areas. First, the theory of language provides a 'framework ‘or ‘model’ for the general structure of?ction, a way of understanding traditional concepts like ‘plot ‘, ‘theme’, ‘character’, ‘style ‘, ‘point of view'. Second, linguistics offers a method of analysis for practical criticism of actual texts. The approach is illustrated with reference to a wide variety of novelists, including Fielding, Sterne, Dickens, Thackeray, George Eliot, Henry james,joyce, Hemingway, D. H. Lawrence, Kingsley Amis, David Storey and Christine Brooke-Rose. Particular attention is paid to point of view and the attitudes and world-views of authors and characters to the ‘ideological ‘ dimensions of novels. Other topics discussed, in the light of linguistic theory, are the relationships between the novel and social structures, and the question of creativity and convention in ?ctional writing.
