A classified bibliography of publications from 1985 to 1990
Metaphor, though not now the scholarly “mania” it once was, remains a topic of great interest in many disciplines albeit with interesting shifts in emphasis. Warren Shibles' Metaphor: An Annotated Bibliography and History (Bloomington, Ind. 1971) recorded the initial interest. Then Metaphor: A Bibliography of Post-1970 Publications, published by John Benjamins, continued the record through the mania years up to 1985 when writings proliferated as metaphor was seen to be a fundamental category in human thought and language. Five years later, there is a need for a report on the newest thinking and tendencies in the field. This need is fulfilled by Metaphor II which offers a comprehensive view of information which would otherwise remain scattered throughout a numbing plethora of resources, including many sometimes-hard-to-find publications from Eastern Europe. Metaphor II systematically collects references of books, articles and papers published between 1985 and May 1990, and includes for completeness corrections and additions to the earlier bibliographies. Abstracts are given for many of the titles, while four indices (disciplines, semantic fields, metaphor theory and names) multiply the number of access points to the information.

Table of Contents
“There can be no doubt that the future research in metaphor will profit from (this) remarkable work for a long time to come”
“A highly commendable feature of the present volume is the Index of disciplines.”
“Suppose one suddenly finds oneself interested in the issue of metaphor in, say advertising, or in the relations of metaphor and myth, or in the comprehension of metaphor by biblingual children. This volume is THE place to start.”
Robert R. Hoffman
“Given its international and multidisciplinary scope and its comprehensiveness, this volume is an absolute ‘must’ for all libraries and the personal collections of all metaphor scholars.”
