Item description for When Voices Clash: A Study in Literary Pragmatics (Trends in Linguistics: Studies and Monographs) (Trends in Linguistics. Studies and Monographs) by Jacob L. Mey...

What is the basic difference between a good and a bad novel? What makes us lose the "thread" of the story (and interest in the plot and the character)? What is it that interrupts the necessary processes of continuously recreating the text that are so crucial for text consumption and successful readership?

Rooted in the pragmatics of literature, this study presents an inquiry into the way divergent, implicit or explicit, points of view of literary characters ("voices") may clash with each other, thus potentially derailing the entire narrative engine. Inquiring into the ways in which such collisions are caused, observed, and possibly repaired, this book examines the various linguistic and narrative technical "tricks" that the reader has at his or her disposal in order successfully to follow the narrative and keep the thread of the narrative intact. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
