Lectures: 15 hours
Seminars: 30 hours
ECTS credits: 4


The course aims to equip third-year students of English and American Studies with the theoretical foundations and the practical skills needed in the analysis of the style of literary works. The lectures introduce students to various approaches to style and its conceptual foundations; to the methodology and tools of stylistic analysis; to the specifics of the language of literary prose and poetry. The seminars are strongly practice- and student-oriented. The texts for classwork cover a range of genres and have been selected to illustrate the major stylistic trends in various periods in the history of literatures in English. On completing the course, students will be capable of critically appreciating the choice of stylistic means and devices in literary texts. The knowledge and skills acquired can be applied to non-literary genres as well.
