Description

Excerpt from The Art of Writing English: A Manual for Students: With Chapters on Paraphrasing, Essay-Writing, Precis-Writing, Punctuation, and Other Matters

This book has been written for the purpose of guiding the young student into the right path, and of saving him from wasting his time in exercises that are not only of no use to him, 'but are positive hindrances in the way of his learning to write good, clear, and firm English. The use of Analysis as a guide to Composition - as it is sometimes called - proves to be the veriest Slough of Despond, in which the student can neither swim nor walk. The writer has not worried his pupils with a large number of rules and meticulous directions, but has tried to set their feet in a plain path, has tried to show them the road to freedom and power - and perhaps even to delight in adequate and rhythmic expression.
