(Im)politeness has been of interest to stylisticians of fiction for almost as long as it has been a concern in pragmatics (see, for example, early work such as that by Brown and Gilman 1989, Simpson 1989, Sell 1992 and Leech 1992). This chapter explains what (im)politeness has to offer to the stylistic analysis of fictional texts as well as what the analysis of (im)politeness in fiction can contribute to pragmatics.
