How to Write Clearly / Rules and Exercises on English Composition

Lezen
How to Write Clearly, written by the Rev. Edwin A. Abbott, is a great paradigm of archaic English language. It was first published in 1876 and gives a lovely example of language as it was nearly 150 years ago. Abbott was an English schoolmaster, becoming headmaster of the City of London School at the tender age of 26. He was educated in mathematics, 'classics' and theology and after his retirement in 1889 he devoted the majority of his time to theological and literary pursuits.

Clauses that are grammatically connected should be kept as close together as possible. Avoid parentheses. But see 55.

Hence forcible writing, and of course tasteful writing also, is far less a matter of rules than is clear writing; and hence, though forcible writing is exemplified in the exercises, clear writing occupies most of the space devoted to the rules.

The writer must have eyes to see the vivid side of everything, as well as words to describe what he sees.
