Summary note
"This smartly illustrated literary miscellanea is intended to stimulate readers and writers of English prose. From "dead language - the speaks" (i.e., ad-speak, media-speak, corporate-speak) through "re-writing - Again?" to rules (to obey or not to obey), authors Barry Healey and Cordelia Strube examine what makes good and bad writing. With tongue often in cheek, they scrutinize various forms of prose and the seven major prose elements, and reflect on how to approach the writing process most effectively. Exhilarating Prose also abounds with examples of startling writing, wide-ranging quotes from celebrated authors, and their own ruminations on the oddities of writing and the infinite eccentricity of the human mind. To those interested in English words in their best order (Coleridge), this book will inform, engage, and amuse."--Amazon.com.
