last year i helped one of my teachers in writing some papers concerning Newberry winners to assist the EFl in China for secondary students. for i am specializing in stylistics for my MA. i wrote 3 papers in this regard.. i think it is fun to drag one chapter for students to do the intensive reading and find out the grammatical characteritics, of course, the precondition is that the tutor should get some knowledge about stylistics. and Newberry's language is simple and easy to understand. that is a good approach to start with.

Hi,

This seems like a great thread with lots of potential - but is there anyway that someone can post up some of the bibliographies previously mentioned or perhaps give a few authors who can be googled?

Thanks

Hi Conzie, I haven't participated in this thread or (therefore) received any of the bibliographies/references alluded to, but one place to start might be with Ronald Carter (at Nottingham Uni, and an author or editor of many books, especially from Routledge, and Cambridge University Press); he seems quite into using and analyzing literature. (Apologies if you've heard of him already).

Then, there's Mick Short, who with Geoffrey Leech co-wrote Style in Fiction: A Linguistic Introduction to English Fictional Prose (Longman/Pearson). They're based at Lancaster.

This thread might also be of interest:

By the way, do you have access to online academic journals via a university or college?
