9781434102812: The Elements of Style: The Original Edition

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.

About the Author:

William Strunk, Jr. (1869-1946) was professor of English at Cornell University. He wrote The Elements of Style back in 1918. He attended meetings of The Manuscript Club, which was "an informal Saturday-night gathering of students and professors interested in writing." There he met E.B. White, who would later revise and expand The Elements of Style and propel it to bestseller status.
