Summary
In Body Language in Literature, Barbara Korte has produced an important interdisciplinary study, by establishing a general theory that accounts for the varieties of body language encountered in literary narrative, based on a general history of the phenomenon in the English language. By focusing on major works of literature, including stories by D.H. Lawrence, Margaret Atwood, and J.D. Salinger, Korte shows body language to be a vital yet unexplored method of communication in literature
