Richard Marius directed the Expository Writing Program at Harvard University for sixteen years, teaching students and creating the philosophy for the only course required of all Harvard undergraduates. That philosophy is embodied in this book. He is the author of three novels, biographies of Thomas More and Martin Luther, and several textbooks on writing including the McGRAW-HILL COLLEGE HANDBOOK which he wrote with Harvey Wiener. His articles have appeared in publications as diverse as the medieval journal, Tradition and the nonmedieval journal, Esquire. He reviews books for many periodicals, including The New York Times, and he writes a regular book review column for Harvard Magazine. He was one of the editors of The Yale Edition of the Complete Works of St. Thomas More, and with Keith Frome, he has edited the Columbia Anthology of Civil War Poetry. He now teaches English and Religious Studies at Harvard and is at work on a fourth novel and a large book on Martin Luther. In 1993 he was awarded the Harvard Foundation Medal for his contributions to minorities at Harvard.
