The Elements of Style

This book sets forth eleven rules of usage, eleven principles of composition, a few matters of form, and a list of commonly misused words and expressions. The rules and principles are in the form of sharp commands such as “do not join independent clauses with a comma”, “do not break sentences in two”, and “use the active voice”, and each rule or principle is followed by a short hortatory essay. A chapter “An Approach to Style” is added by White to this edition to set forth notions of error and articles of faith. Example sentences show proper and improper usage.
