Long before there were creative writing workshops and degrees, how did aspiring writers learn to write? By reading the work of their predecessors and contemporaries, says Francine Prose. In READING LIKE A WRITER, Prose invites you to sit by her side and take a guided tour of the tools and the tricks of the masters. She reads the work of the very best writers - Dostoyevsky, Flaubert, Kafka, Austen, Dickens, Woolf, Chekhov - and discovers why these writers endure. She takes pleasure in the long and magnificent sentences of Philip Roth and the breath-taking paragraphs of Isaac Babel; she is deeply moved by the brilliant characterization in George Eliots MIDDLEMARCH. She looks to John Le Carré for a lesson in how to advance plot through dialogue, to Flannery OConnor for the cunning use of the telling detail, and to James Joyce and Katherine Mansfield who offer clever examples of how to employ gesture to create character. She cautions readers to slow down and pay attention to words, the raw material out of which literature is crafted. Written with passion, humor, and wisdom, READING LIKE A WRITER will inspire readers to return to literature with a fresh eye and an eager heart.

Excerpt from Lessons in Expression and Physical Drill To make a book on a subject which has been publicly discussed ever since the classic days of Greece, Without largely using the thoughts of others, would probably be unwise if not impossible. But changed conditions and new methods of instruction constantly call for the putting of old thoughts into new form. This little book is an e¿´ort to answer one of those calls. I have here embodied a series of lessons which I have used for some years past in classes of beginners. I have found a number of the most excellent books to be designed for use in schools of oratory, and therefore not suited for the ordinary school or academy; others were manuals rather than text - books for class use. In order to put into the hands of the class a book setting forth, as nearly as possible, the work that they would be ex pected to do, this volume was prepared. Instead of making a mere orderly treatise I have combined in each lesson theory and practice; also both vocal and physical work. The practical advantages in this plan are apparent in preserving the enthusiasm of the class by a change from one exercise to the other, in avoiding weariness of weak bodies or voices, and in keeping their skill nearly at a par with their knowledge, for if a pupil sees too many faults in his performance he is likely to give it up in disgust. Neither voice nor action should be cultivated without the other, for, in the first place. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
