  • Product Description

This book provides a modern approach to the study of the language of two foremost novelists of the African continent: Chinua Achebe, a Nigerian and Ngugi wa Thiong'O, a Kenyan. Using stylistic techniques select novels of the two writers are analyzed giving fresh insights into their craft leading to a different interpretation of their texts. Further, the book also extends the field of stylistics itself by melding concepts from narratology and functional grammar in a unique and distinctive way. The language of fiction has proven to be a challenge to many critics because the novel form is unwieldy. The methodology that is used in this book focuses on both macro- and micro- linguistics structures thus creating a new mode to evaluate not just the fictional works of Achebe and Ngugi in particular, but the novel form in general. Therefore, this book should be of interest to scholars of Post colonial literature, African literature, stylistics and narratology. Further, students will get an exposure to concepts in stylistics and its methodology as well.
