Summary

Though it can sometimes be used in introductory English courses at universities, it is more likely to be used in English courses beyond first year. It can be used either in advanced composition courses or as a supplement in literature courses, or any other course where essay writing is a focus.

The four sections - Style as Choice, Clarity, Grace, and Ethics - feature principles of effective prose, chapter summaries for quick and easy review, and group exercises that encourage students to work and learn together. Williams/Nadel offers these principles as reason-based approaches to improving prose, rather than hard and fast rules to writing well. Style: Ten Lessons in Clarity and Grace, empowers students to use their writing not only as a tool to identify and solve problems, but also as a method for exploring their own thinking.
