Haig, Stirling,
ISBN: 0521326494
Book Number: 0280100
Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, England, 1986. Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. First Edition. the only damage to the dust jacket is fading of the spine section, very slight spotting of the top edge of the textbook, no other damage to detail, free of annotations. "A dialogue in a novel is therefore always artificial; it always bears the trace of stylistic effort. Only degrees of effort and levels of style themselves vary, and between the pastoral or "heroic" novel of the French Classical period and the Naturalistic or "behaviourist" novel of the 20th century, the distance is less than one might think. Properly speaking, there is no oral style in literature at all, but a limitation, an oral convention. Moreover, this imitation is not of "reality"; most often it is that of a written tradition." Page 2 includes a select bibliography & index. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. VIII, 200 pages. Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Quantity Available: 1.
