9780023674457: Revising Prose

As its title implies, this book deals with revising, not with original composition. Revising Prose enables students to work on their own at steady, detailed revision. Stressing the importance of the single sentence, “The Paramedic Method” of revision provides students with an easily learned method of revision to combat the obscurities of meaning that plague “The Official Style,” and demonstrates how to revise this stilted, dense prose into plain English. This text has been used with success at every level of higher education, in all disciplines, wherever extensive writing is required. An accompanying 30-minute Revising Prose Video, as well as a Set of Interactive Revision Exercises, are available from Rhetorica, Inc. for an additional fee.
