Description

This smartly illustrated literary miscellanea will pique the interest of English prose enthusiasts anywhere. From “Dead Language – the Speaks” (e.g. ad-speak, etc.) to “Re-writing – Again?” and “Rules – Must We Obey?” authors Healey and Strube scrutinize prose in its various forms to reflect on what constitutes distinctive writing, and why. Included are samples of timeless fiction, astute quotes from celebrated authors, and ruminations on the difficulties of conveying, in prose, the mysteries of the human mind. Those interested in “words in their best order” (Coleridge) will find themselves (dare we say) exhilarated..

“A page of good prose remains invincible.”
—Jon Ceever
“A certaîn ruthlessness and a sense o alîenatîon rom socîety îs as essentîal to creatîve wrîtîng as ît îs to armed robbery. The strong-armer îsn’t out merely to turn a ast buck any more than the poet îs out solely to see hîs name on the cover o a book... What both need most deeply îs to get even.” —Nelson Algren,The Paris Review
“The greatest possîble mînt o style îs to make the words absolutely dîsappear înto the thought.” —Nathanîel Hawthorne
