Description - How to Write Clearly by Rev Edwin a Abbott

Edwin Abbott Abbott (1838-1926), English schoolmaster and theologian, is best known as the author of the mathematical satire and religious allegory Flatland (1884). He was educated at the City of London School and at St John's College, Cambridge, where he took the highest honours in classics, mathematics and theology, and became fellow of his college. Dr. Abbott's liberal inclinations in theology were prominent both in his educational views and in his books. His Shakespearian Grammar (1870) is a permanent contribution to English philology. In 1885 he published a life of Francis Bacon. His theological writings include three anonymously published religious romances - Philochristus (1878), Onesimus (1882), and Sitanus (1906). More weighty contributions are the anonymous theological discussion The Kernel and the Husk (1886), Philomythus (1891), his book The Anglican Career of Cardinal Newman (1892), and his article The Gospels in the ninth edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica, embodying a critical view which caused considerable stir in the English theological world. He also wrote St. Thomas of Canterbury, his Death and Miracles (1898), Johannine Vocabulary (1905) and Johannine Grammar (1906)
