This fully updated edition of Redesigning English explores the innovative uses of English from early manuscripts to post-colonial literature, creative writing and developments in new media.

New chapters for this edition include:

  • what makes English into Art?
  • a tongue for sighing
  • English manuscripts: the emergence of a visual identity
  • English in a globalized world.
