Course overview:

The course aims to introduce the students to the set of concepts and terms and the procedures necessary for the analysis of style in literary texts. It will develop the students’ awareness of the role of language in rendering meanings and attitudes in imaginative literature and will equip them with relevant analytical tools. The lectures provide a general theoretical framework, focusing on the subject of stylistics, the levels of style and the corresponding devices, the contexts of stylistic analysis, the methodologies applied by various schools in the field and the problems posed by the specifics of genre. Attention is also drawn to the rhetoric of the literary text. In the seminars students will have the opportunity to put their knowledge to practice through the detailed analysis of a range of short literary texts representing different periods, schools, authors, and modes. The practical work will involve not only conventional techniques but also creative tasks.

Students  can attend classes with any other group if necessary.
