4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Master of Literary Style 3 mai 2016
Par DrGeorge - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
As a writer for the New Yorker magazine and other literary forums, E. B. White's reputation as a prose stylist is well established, but it is a style better suited to short anecdotes, essays, and features. This collection of his better writings from that magazine shows off his style, his warm humanity, and his often surprising insights and phrasing to advantage. These pieces are also intended for a sophisticated adult audience, which makes them infinitely easier to digest than his celebrated children's stories that I find cloying in the extreme. Anyone interested in learning how to write effective short pieces would do well to study this book. Note, however, that since these pieces were written, the literary style of magazines has devolved as they struggle to keep pace with the rapidly waning ability of the general public to read or comprehend anything more challenging than M.C. Beaton. If White were alive today, he would struggle to place many of these pieces with any magazine, because they are too well written -- which is a tribute to White, and a sad commentary on the audience he once served.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Worth checking out. 3 août 2015
Par Connie plank - Publié sur Amazon.com

Always neat to read E.B. White. He writes crisply and intelligently and has such a neat sense of humor. In these essays he writes about the current events of his time--the Communist threat, the second world war, the politicians of the time, pollution, changing times, and it is as though he were writing for today.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Simply Elegant 6 juillet 2014
Par Sue - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Anyone interested in writing should read E.B. White, and this collection provides a most interesting look at how this man wrote. He was an amazing craftsman, and his style, using the English language as his tool, is precise and honest. Not only that, but every essay deals with an interesting topic. I particularly liked his 'story' of going with Joe MacCarthy to visit Thoreau's cabin in the woods.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 wonderful book for New Yorker fans. 11 mars 2014
Par Freds Mom - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
the stories are wonderful, the New Yorker was in its heyday when these were written. You can sit down and read one story, or you can read the whole book. I loved the stories and am glad to add this to my collection. There's something in here for everyone to enjoy, whether you read the New Yorker magazine or not.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The making of E. B. White 16 juillet 2014
Par CatPet - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
While composed of brief (some VERY brief) pieces and not as resonant as White's longer essays, this volume is worth having and reading. The pieces are dated, so you can get a sense of the evolution of White's voice, and it is interesting to see prefigurings of later essays. Highly recommended.
