Learning to Write

“The important thing is that Elyot is aware of prose as an art. His sentences do not simply happen, they are built. He keeps a firm hold on his construction, he is nearly always lucid, and his rhythm is generally sound.”

Lewis also mentions freedom from confusion and monotony. There are more than a few things to be gleaned by going through his observations on all the chaps in English Literature in the Sixteenth Century Excluding Drama.

Interestingness is all, and learning to write—at least for me—is endless.
