Essays of E.B. White by E. B White( Book )

34 editions published between 1975 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,945 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When E.B. White received the Gold Medal for Essays and Criticism from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the following citation, here quoted in part, accompanied the award: 'If we are remembered as a civilized era, I think it will be partly because of E.B. White. The historians of the future will decide that a writer of such grace and control could not have been produced by a generation wholly lacking in such qualities, and we will shine by reflection in his gentle light. Of all the gifts he has given us in his apparently casual essays, the best gift is himself. He has permitted us to meet a man who is both cheerful and wise, the owner of an uncommon sense that is lit by laughter. When he writes of large subjects he does not make them larger and windier than they are, and when he writes of small things they are never insignificant. He is, in fact, a civilized human being--an order of man that has always been distinguished for its rarity.' The essays in this companion volume to the Letters of E.B. White have been selected by White himself, from a lifetime of writing. 'I have chosen the ones that have amused me in the rereading, ' he writes in the Foreword, 'along with a few that seemed to have the odor of durability clinging to them.' The Essays of E.B. White are incomparable; like his Letters, this is a volume to treasure and savor at one's leisure."--Jacket

In the words of E.B. White : quotations from America's most companionable of writers by E. B White( )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author of Charlotte's Web and One Man's Meat, coauthor of The Elements of Style, and columnist for The New Yorker for almost half a century, E.B. White (1899-1985) is an American literary icon. Over the course of his career, White inspired generations of writers and readers with his essays (both serious and humorous), children's literature, and stylistic guidance. In the Words of E.B. White offers readers a delightful selection of "ations, selected and annotated by his granddaughter and literary executor, Martha White. The "ations cover a wide range of subjects and situations, from Automobiles, Babies, Bees, City Life, and College to Spiders, Taxes, Weather, Work, and Worry. E.B. White comments on writing for children, how to tell a major poet from a minor one, and what to do when one becomes hopelessly mired in a sentence. White was apt to address the subject of security by speaking first about a Ferris wheel at the local county fair, or the subject of democracy from the perspective of roofing his barn and looking out across the bay-he had a gift for bringing the abstract firmly into the realm of the everyday. Included here are gems from White's books and essay collections, as well as bits from both published and unpublished letters and journals. This is a book for readers and writers, for those who know E.B. White from his "Notes and Comment" column in The New Yorker, have turned to The Elements of Style for help in crafting a polished sentence, or have loved a spider's assessment of Wilbur as "Some Pig." This distillation of the wit, style, and humanity of one of America's most distinguished essayists of the twentieth century will be a welcome addition to any reader's bookshelf
