Creativity plays a fundamental role in how we negotiate all aspects of our lives. It is understood to be part of our very humanity. The books in this series provide an in-depth introduction to creativity in the English language. They look at what linguistic creativity is, how it is used, and the range of issues that it raises, in everyday contexts, in literature and in ‘high’ culture. Creativity is shown to fulfil a range of social, cultural, artistic and political functions, for examples in narratives and narrative practices that are changing in the era of digital media, and in the ways the global status of English is altering both the nature of linguistic practices and what is evaluated as creative around the world.
