An indispensable guide for writers of English prose from Robert Graves
First published in 1947, THE READER OVER YOUR SHOULDER remains required reading for anyone who wants to write more clearly and artfully. Editor Alan Hodge and author Robert Graves encourage the writer to write as if 'a crowd of his prospective readers… [are] looking over his shoulder', anticipating possible questions and criticism.
They identify the most common blunders writers make and lay out 41 principles - 25 dealing with clarity of statement, 16 with grace of expression - while showing us how to avoid them. Their insights are as fresh and their examples as entertaining as they were 70 years ago, as they address such topics as 'The Use and Abuse of Official English' and 'Where Is Good English to Be Found?'
In print again for the first time in decades, this lost gem is sure to take its rightful place as an indispensable resource for writers of English prose.
