Product description

Review

'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

About the Author

F. L. Lucas (1894-1967), Fellow of King's College, Cambridge, was a distinguished scholar known for his studies of the classics as well as of English literature. The Sunday Times wrote that "Lucas has distinguished himself in more than thirty volumes as a poet, a novelist, a translator, a biographer, a critic and an editor. He is entitled to write about style because he writes with style."
