Creativity in Language is a provocative and valuable book. Its breadth of topics, variety of approaches, and self-consciously creative and dialogic nature are especially appropriate and creative ways of approaching the subject of creativity. The range of levels of difficulty, and the concentration on creativity in both everyday contexts and literary ones and in a wide range of genres, give potential teachers the opportunity to make assignments based on the needs and levels of preparation of their own students. The scope, variety, and original content of this book make it a unique contribution to the field. - Professor David L. Hoover, New York University
