About Book

Book Description
In these essays, Stevenson gives advice on a variety of subjects, ranging from inspiration and direction to the technical methods of writing. He explains the basic tools of word choice, rhythm in verse and prose, plotting, and style, with a discussion of the morality of writing--the potential for good that literature has, and the responsibility of the writer to wisely use that power. Newly designed and typeset in a modern 5.5-by-8.5-inch format by Waking Lion Press.

THERE is nothing more disenchanting to man than to be shown the springs and mechanism of any art. All our arts and occupations lie wholly on the surface; it is on the surface that we perceive their beauty, fitness, and significance; and to pry below is to be appalled by their emptiness and shocked by the coarseness of the strings and pulleys.
