by Charles Bazerman - Parlor Press
This volume draws on work from the social sciences -- and in particular sociocultural psychology, phenomenological sociology, and the pragmatic tradition of social science -- to reconceive rhetoric around the problems of written communication.
by Nathaniel C. Fowler - Sulley and Kleinteich
The writing of stories of every class and of any length, and of every kind of literature, is a distinct art or profession, may be considered as a trade, and cannot be accurately weighed unless subject to both ethical and commercial consideration.
by Charles Raymond Barrett - Project Gutenberg
This book is an attempt to put into definite form the principles observed by the masters of the short story in the practice of their art. It is the result of a careful study of their work and of some indifferent attempts to imitate them.
by Richard Mitchell - Little, Brown
Author takes examples of bad writing and rips them to shreds. These mistakes are revelations about the mind that wrote them. The examples of bad writing that come from educators are given special attention. Mitchell's first book is also his best.
