              How to Write a Sentence: And How to Read One (EPUB ebook)

              By Fish, Stanley

              "Like a long periodic sentence, this book rumbles along, gathers steam, shifts gears, and packs a wallop." -Roy Blount Jr. "Language lovers will flock to this homage to great writing." -Booklist Outspoken New York Times columnist Stanley Fish offers an entertaining, erudite analy...sis of language and rhetoric inthis delightful celebration of the written word. Drawing on a wide range of great writers, from Philip Roth to Antonin Scalia to Jane Austen and beyond, Fish's How to Write a Sentence is much more than a writing manual-it is a penetrating exploration into the art and craft of sentences.

              Analyzes various arguments for the value of academic freedom: Is academic freedom a contribution to society's common good? Does it authorize professors to critique the status quo, both inside and outside the university? Does it license and even require the overturning of all rece...ived ideas and policies? Is it an engine of revolution?

              Stanley Fish, the notoriously brash and brilliant English and Law professor, has authored dozens of academic books on subjects ranging from Milton to freedom of speech. In 2011, Fish turned his eye to a more popular subject, the art of writing great sentences. His short, wise boo...k How to Write a Sentence became an instant New York Times Bestseller and continues to be read by students and aspiring writers. Adam Haslet called the book, deeper and more democratic than The Elements of Style. If great sentences are, in effect, performances at the highest level, Fish acts as a lively sportscaster giving the reader a blow-by-blow. In Winning Arguments, Fish employs this same wit and observational prowess as he guides readers through the greatest hits of rhetoric including landmark legal cases, arguments drawn from popular film and TV, and even Fish's own career. The success of books like Jay Heinrich's Thank You For Arguing demonstrate a clear audience for fun, intellectually nourishing books that make you feel just a little bit smarter for having read them. Like How to Write a Sentence, Winning Arguments will become a modern classic --
