View Author Bio
White, E. B. :
E. B. White was born in Mount Vernon, NY, and graduated from Cornell University. He was awarded the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award in 1970 for his work. He is the author of Charlotte's Web, Stuart Little, and The Trumpet of the Swan, an ALA Notable Children's Book. Mr. White, who authored over seventeen books of prose and poetry, was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1973.
''The abiding spirit of these essays is humane, compassionate, traditionalistic. No matter what his subject, White always keeps his eye on the long view and the larger perspective. There are times when I feel his work is as much a national resource as the Liberty Bell, a call to the best and noblest in us.''
--Jonathan Yardley, San Francisco Examiner
''Some of the finest examples of contemporary, genuinely American prose. White's style incorporates eloquence without affection, profundity without pomposity, and wit without frivolity or hostility. Like his predecessors Thoreau and Twain, White's creative, humane, and graceful perceptions are an education for the sensibilities.''
''His voice rumbles with authority through sentences of surpassing grace. In his more than fifty years at The New Yorker, White set a standard of writerly craft for that supremely well-wrought magazine. In genial, perfectly poised essay after essay, he has wielded the English language with as much clarity and control as any American of his time.''
--Baymond Sokolov, Newsweek
