This is the first book-length study of how point of view is manifested linguistically in dramatic texts. It examines such issues as how readers process the shifts in viewpoint that can occur within such texts. Using insights from cognitive linguistics, the book aims to explain how the analysis of point of view in drama can be undertaken, and how this is fruitful for understanding textual and discoursal effects in this genre. Following on from a consideration of existing frameworks for the analysis of point of view, a cognitive approach to deixis is suggested as being particularly profitable for explaining the viewpoint effects that can arise in dramatic texts. To expand on the large number of examples discussed throughout the book, the penultimate chapter consists of an extended analysis of a single play. This book is relevant to scholars in a range of areas, including linguistics, literary studies and cognitive science.

“A sophisticated stylistics of drama has been a long time coming, and Dan McIntyre's book sets the agenda. This book is significant for offering principled solutions for narratology, for cognitive poetics, for literary scholars and of course for advancing a poetics of drama. It will be regarded by future stylisticians of theatre as a turning point in the field.”
“The volume is an important (linguistic) stylistic contribution to the study of literary (dramatic) discourse, especially because its findings are based on empirical data.”
