Roman Jakobson reasserts the value of Jakobson's work and argues that he has a great deal to offer contemporary critical theory, providing a critical appraisal of the sweep of Jakobson's career. Richard Bradford re-establishes Roman Jakobson's work as vital to our understanding of the relationship between language and poetry. By exploring Jakobson's thesis that poetry is the primary object language, this book offers a new reading of his work which includes the most radical elements of modernism. This book will be invaluable to students of Jakobson and to anyone interested in the development of critical theory, linguistics and stylistics.
