I have a Strunk and White. I like having it. And it’s clarity has helped me. Not because I necessarily followed the advice or even agree with it now, but because at a more formative time in my writing life, it gave me a simple place to depart from. It made me feel like a writer to have it. When I first read White’s advice (far more than Strunk’s), it cheered me to have a writer I love talk to me about writing. I keep the book for that feeling more than any other. — Nick Carbone – Frankenstrunk is Shrunken Strunk (TechNotes: Teaching Writing in an Online World)
Carbone is commenting on the occasion of a new edition of Strunk & White, this one featuring illustrations.
