The Art of Writing
This invaluable work has proven itself to be a trustworthy guide for writers, students and literary critics. The author, F.M. Salter (1895-1962), produced a number of scholarly works in his special fields of Elizabethan and Medieval Literature, but he was above all, a teacher. The Art of Writing is a product of Professor Salter's many years of experience, and of his determination that no aspiring writer should fail for lack of encouragement and good, sound advice. Chapters include: The Craft of Writing, including language, diction, style and emphasis; The Virtues of Writing, including brevity, simplicity, variety and significant detail; The Graces of Writing, including sense, appeal, irony, imagery and rhythem, and The Art of Writing, including enthusiasm, restraint and sincerity.
