Abstract:

"This book advocates for a new analytical framework that extends our understanding of multimodal meaning-making in the novel. Integrating theoretical traditions from stylistics and the social semiotic approach to multimodal communication popularized by Kress and van Leeuwen, Nørgaard applies this method of analysis in order to build on existing research on stylistic practices that look at linguistic features, such as lexis and grammar, in the novel to encompass other semiotic modes found in the form, such as color, layout, and typography. The volume grounds the discussion with supporting examples from novels that feature multi-layered semiotic forms but also traditional novels as well, furthering the argument that all novels are inherently multimodal. Offering new insights and tools for analysis for unpacking multimodal meaning-making in this critical literary genre, this volume is an indispensable resource for graduate students and researchers in multimodality, stylistics, and literary studies"--
