Description du produit

Revue de presse

'Style is filled with fine things ... F. L. Lucas wrote the best book on prose composition for the not-so-simple reason that, in the modern era, he was the smartest, most cultivated man to turn his energies to the task.' --Joseph Epstein, The New Criterion (2011)

'Lucas's advice can do nothing but good. His own style illustrates the virtues he commends.' --The Guardian

'This book is certain to delight many readers and could help many writers.' --The Sunday Times

Like C.S. Lewis, Lucas is a most amiable companion who shares hard-won learning lightly and without pretense --Harold Henkel, Regent University

'This book is certain to delight many readers and could help many writers.' --The Sunday Times

I have put Style on my nearest shelf, and I would like to make the honest (not defiant) challenge to any reader to knock it down. --Boyd Holmes, Active Voice magazine

'This book is certain to delight many readers and could help many writers.' --The Sunday Times

Présentation de l'éditeur

"The best book on the art of writing that I know is F. L. Lucas's Style"
- Joseph Epstein, New Criterion, June 2011
Lost for almost forty years, Style has acquired the status of a legend. Loved by some of the greatest modern authors and acclaimed by critics, this guide to recognising and writing stylish prose was written by a Cambridge don and veteran of Bletchley Park. Imbued with a lifetime of wit and wisdom, it retains its power today.

Writing forcefully and persuasively has never mattered so much - and Style is the perfect guide for the busy, the ambitious, and the creative.

With unique authority and good humour, F. L. Lucas takes us through his ten points of effective prose style and provides a tour of some of the best (and worst) that has been written in a number of languages and literatures. Wry, perceptive and rich in quotation and anecdote, the book reads like a personal conversation on the art of writing well - with a master of the art.

Seems somewhat stuffy and has more Latin than I would have wished for--although, in truth, I would have wished for none--but it does quote a wonderful gruff letter written by Samuel Johnson to someone whose patronage he had requested. There are lovely books out there like "English Prose Style" by Herbert Read or the delightful "Artful Sentences: Syntax as Style" by Virginia Tufte. I heartily recommend both of those books.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The best book on writing; period. 25 mars 2014
Par Trevor Butterworth - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
"Style," says Lucas, "is personality clothed in words." This is a rumination on character, voice and virtue, refracted through encyclopedic reading. It is unlike any other book on writing in print - or out.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A stylish and fascinating guide to recognising and writing good prose. 14 avril 2014
Par Nicholas J. Ordinans - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Why have I never heard of this book before?

Stylish, informed, informative and a fascinating guide to recognising and writing good prose.

The man himself, Frank Laurence Lucas (1894–1967), apart from looking like everyone's idea of Sherlock Holmes, was a WWI veteran, an accomplished writer, a leading light of the code breakers at Bletchley in WWII and a vocal opponent of appeasement with Nazi Germany.

This book is a rare treasure and deserves to be an oft-referenced classic.

This book may seem old-fashioned to some people, especially youngsters. But if you're a fan of writing guides as I am, Lucas's tome is a gift that keeps giving.
