New Oxford Guide to Writing by Thomas S. Kane

Book Description

Many books on writing tell you how to think more creatively, conjure up an idea, and how to express it clearly and elegantly. Many handbooks offer reliable advice on the use of commas, semicolons and so forth. But The New Oxford Guide to Writing does all three, so that no matter where you find yourself in the writing process - from the daunting look as a blank page, to the rough draft that needs shaping, to the small but important questions of punctuation - you will find what you need in one handy all-inclusive volume. Highlighted by numerous examples of successful prose - including marvellous brief excerpts from Mark Twain, Joan Didian, H. L. Mencken, E. B. White and Anne Dillard - this stimulating volume covers the entire subject step by step, clearly and authoritatively. It shows: How to use commonplace books and journals to store ideas, how to brainstorm, how to explore potential topics, sound methods of constructing an outline, the best way to open an essay clearly and interestingly, how to select words that convey both information and point of view ...and much more.
