"Neither The Elements of Style nor any other style book can be the definitive text on writing in every genre or media." —ENGL328 student, Fall 2009
"We concentrate on utility at the expense of joie
de vivre. And we then
wonder, as de Tocqueville prophesied we would, why life has lost its savor"
(19). —Richard Lanham, Style: An Anti-textbook
"Style, as we know it, is not 'mechanics' but, rather, a rhetorical canon inseparable from the contingencies of purpose, audience, form, and historical or social context in which a communicative act takes place" (327). —Cornelius Cosgrove, "What Our Graduates Write"
