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. Focusing on how English has, and continues to evolve through its global status, there is a strong emphasis on the visual forms of language and communication, and on issues of identity and politics.

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.
