WRITING CREATIVELY.
HOOK, J.N.
THIS BOOK IS INTENDED FOR USE WITH STUDENTS WHO CAN PROFIT FROM INSTRUCTION IN VIGOROUS AND COLORFUL WRITING. EMPHASIS IS PLACED UPON SHOWING THE STUDENT THAT HIS OWN EXPERIENCE IS RICHER THAN HE MAY SUPPOSE AND UPON HELPING HIM TO DRAW FROM IT. THE FIRST SECTION OF THE BOOK CONSIDERS THE GENERAL PRINCIPLES OF SUBJECT, THEME, OBSERVATION, SENSORY WORDS, DESCRIPTION, AND IMAGERY. FOUR FOLLOWING SECTIONS TREAT THE WRITING OF FICTION (SHORT STORY AND SHORT PLAY), THE WRITING OF POETRY, THE WRITING OF FACTS (THEMES, ARTICLES, LETTERS, JOURNALISTIC ACCOUNTS, BIOGRAPHIES, AND AUTOBIOGRAPHIES), AND THE WRITER'S CRAFT. EACH SECTION CONTAINS MANY SAMPLE PASSAGES AND EXERCISES TO ILLUSTRATE AND EXEMPLIFY THE PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES ADVOCATED IN THE TEXT. (THIS BOOK WAS PUBLISHED BY D.C. HEATH AND COMPANY, BOSTON.)
