              Mary Shapiro explores the use of regional and ethnic dialects in the works of David Foster Wallace, not just as a device used to add realism to dialogue, but as a vehicle for important social commentary about the role language plays in our daily lives, how we express personal ide...ntity, and how we navigate social relationships. Wallace's Dialects straddles the fields of linguistic criticism and folk linguistics, considering which linguistic variables of Jewish-American English, African-American English, Midwestern, Southern, and Boston regional dialects were salient enough for Wallace to represent, and how he showed the intersectionality of these with gender and social class. The author's own use of language is examined with respect to how it encodes his identity as a white, male, economically privileged Midwesterner, while also foregrounding characteristic and distinctive idiolect features that allowed him to connect to readers across implied social boundaries.

              Originally published in 1985, as with the earlier volumes in the series, the reader of The Rover is here provided a Verbal Index, citing each type and its location, a Word Frequency Table, and a Field of Reference. Using the tables in this concordance, the reader should be better... able to address the issue of style and determine on a more informed basis whether Conrad has deliberately eschewed the adjectival and even the figurative in favour of a lean, spare style, or whether he has simply tangled his style in rhetorical excesses and imprecisions.

It should be able to shed light on problems distinct to The Arrow of Gold even as it provides i...nformation on questions pertinent to Conrad's work as a whole. This volume is part of a series which produced verbal indexes, concordances, and related data for all of Conrad's works.

              This book explores the centrality of comedy to contemporary English fiction and identifies a discernible 'comic turn' in recent works by Martin Amis, Nicola Barker, Julian Barnes, Jonathan Coe, Howard Jacobson, Zadie Smith and Magnus Mills. Focusing on novels published since 2000... but establishing links with earlier texts from the classical tradition onwards, Huw Marsh draws on the work of critics and theorists including David Herman, Gilles Deleuze, Sianne Ngai, James Wood, Paulo Virno and Alenka Zupancic, as well as the classic theories of comedy and humour from Aristotle and Plato through to Freud, Bergson and Bakhtin. The literary texts and theories are brought into dialogue to suggest a series of frameworks for examining the rich possibilities of the comic dimension in contemporary fiction.
