Description
If you want to write better, read more. This idea is not original; it was acknowledged by Benjamin Franklin, among others. But effective learning from reading goes beyond mere appreciation of the quality of writing and imitation of the writer's mastery in expressing the message. Improving writing through reading means recognizing the significance of an essay and then responding to it in some way. This book is designed to help readers develop those skills. Arranged by rhetorical patterns, this very readable book discusses the techniques or methods of presentation that enable a writer to create an effective essay. The book contains a brief chapter on developing critical reading skills, as well as an extensive chapter devoted solely to the writing process. Also included are a broad and diverse selection of writing by powerful, accomplished writers such as Joan Didion, John Steinbeck and Langston Hughes interspersed with never-before-anthologized writers such as reporter Steven A. Holmes and cartoonist Gary Larson. Writing teachers and aspiring writers.
