HEADLINE: 'The Elements of Style': Still fashionable after 50 years
HEADLINE: A Half-Century Of "Stupid Grammar Advice"never seems to go out of date.
Of course anyone who had a writing class, this was a required text.Dorothy Parker, who reviewed the guide for Esquire magazine: "If you have any young friends who aspire to become writers, the second greatest favor you can do them is to present them with copies of The Elements of Style. The first greatest, of course, is to shoot them now, while they're happy."
The Grammer Police of Cyburbia should be happy.
Are they going to go out and buy the 50th Anniversary Edition ?
