Before he or she "the author", there is he or she "the person".
Analyzing authors by analyzing the words they use;
Revealing the person behind the pages by revealing the condition of language.
Literature is not all about a play of a language, or a kind of linguistic game. The written pages are not only a representation of the black and the white; the verbal and the visual, but also much more. A writer somehow does not only write a book. He or she – most importantly – lives a book. The text itself does not only represent the condition of language – rather, it does represent the condition of one's own self.
