More About Building Great Sentences by Brooks Landon
 
 
 
Overview
Based on the bestselling series from The Great Courses, Building Great Sentences celebrates the sheer joy of language and will forever change the way you read and write.
Great writing begins with the sentence. Whether it s two words ( Jesus wept. ) or William Faulkner s 1,287-word sentence in Absalom Absalom , sentences have the power to captivate, entertain, motivate, educate, and, most importantly, delight. Yet, the sentence-oriented approach to writing is too often overlooked in favor of bland economy. Building Great Sentences teaches you to write better sentences by luxuriating in the pleasures of language.
Award-winning Professor Brooks Landon draws on examples from masters of long, elegant sentences including Don DeLillo, Virginia Woolf, Joan Didion, and Samuel Johnson to reveal the mechanics of how language works on thoughts and emotions, providing the tools to write powerful, more effective sentences."
