Book: Text Type and Texture

Chapter: Boomer dreaming: the texture of re-colonisation in a lifestyle magazine

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.29429


Martin closes the collection with an overview and illustration of a methodological approach by which our understanding of texturing can be further extended. In his chapter, Martin draws on his extensive experience of discourse analysis to provide a detailed account, which will be illuminating for both the experienced and the novice text analyst, of how to approach a text, and shunt from the text to the context to the ideological meanings constructed. In doing this, he brings together many of the threads of earlier chapters and shows how they can be integrated in a comprehensive analysis of how a text works as a text.
