Jacques Barzun, "Simple & Direct: A Rhetoric for Writers"
Harper & Row | 1976 | ISBN: 0060405139 | English | PDF | 249 pages | 55.2 Mb

In 'Simple & Direct', Jacques Barzun, celebrated author and educator, distills from a lifetime of writing and teaching his thoughts about the craft of writing. In chapters on diction, syntax, tone, meaning, composition, and revision, Barzun describes and prescribes the techniques to correct even the most ponderous style. Exercises, model passages — both literary and unorthodox — and hundreds of often amusing examples of usage gone wrong demonstrate the process of making intelligent choices and guide us toward developing strong and distinctive prose.
