William Strunk jr. eBooks

William Strunk may have had the most profound influence on the usage of American English of any author. With over 10 million copies of in print, The Elements of Style is still the leading authority on the various elements that make up the written word. Originally, the book was intended only for his students to help them with their lessons, and to alleviate a bit of the burden that Strunk faced while grading papers. At this time the book was titled The Elements and Practice of Composition. Then, in 1957 a former student of Strunk’s, E. B. White, wrote a piece for his New Yorker column where he praised Strunk’s book for holding to the virtues of what all writers should try to attain. The great mantra of his book being, “One must first know the rules of composition to break them.” The only other publication of note by Strunk is English Metres, a study of metrical form in poetry.

Born in 1869, Strunk grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. He achieved his bachelor’s degree from the University of Cincinnati, and then received his PhD from Cornell University, where he would eventually become an English Professor. His first stop was at Rose Polytechnical Institute where he taught mathematics. He then moved back to Cornell and taught English for the last 46 years of his working life.
