Description

Asserting that one must first know the rules to break them, this classic reference book is an essential guide for students, teachers, editors, and writers. In this 1918 original edition, Strunk concentrates on specific questions of usage, the cultivation of good writing, and avoiding overwriting by making "every word tell." E. B. White, a writer at the New Yorker magazine who studied under Strunk, described this "little book" as a "forty-three-page summation of the case for cleanliness, accuracy, and brevity in the use of English." Newly designed and typeset by Waking Lion Press.show more
