About this product
- DescriptionThis book explores the use of idioms in Salman Rushdie's eleven vels. Firstly, the key concepts in phraseology are discussed as a background to the study of Rushdie's idiomaticity. Salman Rushdie is presented as a metaphorical and phraseological writer before the main tenets of phraseo-stylistics are addressed. Then the physical presence of idiomatic expressions in Salman Rushdie's vels is examined and, finally, through close readings and textual analyses of Salman Rushdie's works, the functionality of idioms employed by the author in his prosaic works is determined. This study establishes Salman Rushdie's prose as highly idiomatic and the author as exceptionally creative when it comes to the deployment of idioms in literary texts.
