The Elements of Style

by William Strunk Jr. and E.B. White


Originally published in 1959

The Elements of Style is a classic style manual. The revisions to the fourth edition are purposely kept minimal to retain the book's tone, wit, and charm. A glossary of grammatical terms used in the book provides a reference for readers. The discussion of pronoun use is revised to reflect the contemporary concern with sexist language. A Foreword by Roger Angell reminds readers that the advice of Strunk and White is as valuable today as when it was first offered. This book conveys the principles of English style.
