The original “Elements of Style” was a text book written by William Strunk, Jr. for his Cornell English Class. It contains eight rules of uses, ten rules of composition, some notes on miscellaneous matters of form in writing (such as headings, numerals, and quotations), and list of commonly misused and misspelled words. In 1957, after strunk’s death, it was extensively revised by his former student E.B. White, best known today for his children’s book. White expanded the original section and added an additional section on style. The first section on basic grammar rules is the most susceptible to the English textbook problem. It is with the second section that “The Elements of Style” leaves ground well-trod by grammar texts and becomes a work of art. Printed Pages: 54.
