Part of an advanced understanding of grammatical rules and conventions is knowing when to break them. This guide advises students how to bend those rules in order to make their writing more interesting. Thirty-six concise chapters discuss the potential stylistic benefits of (for example) split infinitives, the passive voice, and ending a sentence with a preposition. All chapters are illustrated with examples from the works of contemporary professional writers of nonfiction. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
