Manufacturer Description

Style combines a concise and clear guide to stylistic revision and a mini-anthology of professional prose stylists. Three stylistic guidelines-relevance, proportion, and clarity-link revision strategies to everyday conversational practice. Mini-anthology of 7 selections analyzes stylistic decisions of authors in various fields, showing how they follow, or flout, the stylistic guidelines. Section on metaphor shows readers how to generate new and related ideas from previous drafts. Three new readings including Carol Clover's essay on gender in the modern horror film, a model of academic writing. A new section on pronoun choice helps writers avoid sexist language. More "real-world" examples and exercises illustrate how pragmatic decisions of style are applied. Includes more emphasis on alphabetic literacy, both as a technology and as it relates to speech. For those seeking a clear and concise style book to enhance their writing skills.
