By: Gerard Stout

Word of Uncommon Shape : How Writers Create Vividness in Language ...

By: P. T. Barber

This book provides a new, practical guide for those who want to understand how effective writing is achieved. You know a passage sounds dull, you know a story didn’t end right—but do you know how to fix these? Building on observations of how human brains are built for absorbing information, the author reveals the internal engines driving the composition of interesting fiction and non-fiction: successful (and unsuccessful) structuring of plots, characters, and symbolism...

(From Chap. 1:) “Raskolnikov” is derived from a Russian word for “schism” (raskol). Should we miss the hint, Raskolnikov has a friend whose name, Razumikhin, is derived from a word meaning “reason” (razum). And if we miss even that hint, Razumikhin says about Raskolnikov that it is “as if there really were two opposite characters in him, changing places with each other.” And if all this gets by us, the heroine’s name is “Sonia,” which is a diminutive of the Greek “Sophia,” or “Wisdom”…
