How to Write
First published in 1931, How to Write contains Stein's thoughts about the craft of writing - about words, sentences, paragraphs, grammar, and narrative. Writing in her inimitable style, Stein lucidly explains her thoughts on writing everything from a sentence to a syllable, from the paragraph to whole grammars.
Famous among the essays of this volume are "Sentences and Paragraphs," "Arthur A Grammar," "Sentences," "Regular Regularly in Narrative," "Finally George A Vocabulary," and "Forensics." Together these essays and others reveal Stein's ideas and techniques and provide a read that is unique and exhilarating.
