This book is intended for use in English courses in which the practice of composition is combined with the study of literature. It aims to give in a brief space the principal requirements of plain English style. It aims to lighten the task of instructor and student by concentrating attention (in Chapters II and III) on a few essentials, the rules of usage and principles of composition most commonly violated. The numbers of the sections may be used as references in correcting manuscript. The book covers only a small portion of the field of English style, but the experience of its writer has been that once past the essentials, students profit most by individual instruction based on the problems of their own work, and that each instructor has his own body of theory, which he prefers to that offered by any textbook.

This new and updated (2017) Classic Edition contains the original version of “The Elements of Style” by William Strunk Jr. as well as new content including editor’s notes flagging grammar rules now considered out-of-date, and a study guide. Generations of writers and college students have learned the basics of grammar from this short book. It was rated “one of the 100 most influential books written in English” by Time in 2011, and iconic author Stephen King recommended it as a grammar handbook that all aspiring writers should read. Strunk’s grammar classic, written a century ago, is a nostalgic link to the Art Deco era and the Roaring Twenties. Many of the grammar rules listed in the book are still relevant today; but, one by one, these rules are becoming obsolete. This Classic Edition commemorates the 100-year anniversary of Prof. Strunk’s book and presents his original version, but this new version offers these bonus features for present-day readers: 1. Editor’s Notes throughout the book alert readers to obsolete grammar rules and offer up-to-date advice on modern writing practices. 2. Grammar examples are illustrated with “right” and “wrong” icons, allowing readers to easily tell correct examples from errors at a glance. 3. A Study Guide has been added at the back of the book. 4. The paperback version provides blank, lined pages at the back of the book for convenient note taking. 5. The e-book version has been restyled for improved display on the latest e-book readers; and the paperback edition has been restyled and reformatted for a more modern, appealing look. If you are looking for a quick refresher to improve your grammar and style, or if you are taking a college course and “Elements of Style” is on your required reading list, this Classic Edition will give you the best of both worlds: a version that remains true to Strunk’s original book, plus modern touches which make this grammar book truly useful and up-to-date. Thank you for purchasing “Elements of Style: Classic Edition” and enjoy your read!

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.
