About the Author

F. L. Lucas (1894-1967), Fellow of King's College, Cambridge, was a distinguished scholar known for his studies of the classics as well as of English literature. The Sunday Times wrote that "Lucas has distinguished himself in more than thirty volumes as a poet, a novelist, a translator, a biographer, a critic and an editor. He is entitled to write about style because he writes with style."

F.L. Lucas's Style has the highest recommendation a book can receive: The literary critic Joseph Epstein called it the best of its kind. Within these pages is an urbane and witty tour guide of the English language.

Lucas has an interesting point of view, and his learning is formidable without being overbearing. He establishes principles, distills them with a mix of literary flair and supple thought. Superior to the technical writing school; because for Lucas writing is about personality and character. Without those, good writing is impossible. Best to read into or deep into as time allows.

"Style," says Lucas, "is personality clothed in words." This is a rumination on character, voice and virtue, refracted through encyclopedic reading. It is unlike any other book on writing in print - or out.

Why have I never heard of this book before?

Stylish, informed, informative and a fascinating guide to recognising and writing good prose.

The man himself, Frank Laurence Lucas (1894–1967), apart from looking like everyone's idea of Sherlock Holmes, was a WWI veteran, an accomplished writer, a leading light of the code breakers at Bletchley in WWII and a vocal opponent of appeasement with Nazi Germany.

This book is a rare treasure and deserves to be an oft-referenced classic.

This book may seem old-fashioned to some people, especially youngsters. But if you're a fan of writing guides as I am, Lucas's tome is a gift that keeps giving.
