For readers who luxuriate in language and the wonders it weaves…for writers working to elevate their prose by placing just the right words in just the right order…for teachers, editors, and anyone else devoted to grammar and rhetoric…25 Great Sentences is a can't-miss read! English teacher/author Geraldine Woods selects excerpts from classic and contemporary literature to illustrate the myriad ways sentences can be structured to pack the biggest punch. From a revealing pocket sentence in Mrs. Dalloway and a masterful example of word shifts in Ulysses to a now-famous crossed sentence in JFK's inaugural address and the beloved onomatopoeia of The Little Engine That Could, these sentences are a delightful tour through memorable literature.
