Building Great Sentences free pdf Based on the bestselling series from The Great Courses, "Building Great Sentences" celebrates the sheer joy of language--and will forever change the way you read and write. Great writing begins with the sentence. Whether it's two words ("Jesus wept.") or William Faulkner's 1,287-word sentence in "Absalom! Absalom!," sentences have the power to captivate, entertain, motivate, educate, and, most importantly, delight. Yet, the sentence-oriented approach to writing is too often overlooked in favor of bland economy. "Building Great Sentences" teaches you to write better sentences by luxuriating in the pleasures of language. Award-winning Professor Brooks Landon draws on examples from masters of long, elegant sentences--including Don DeLillo, Virginia Woolf, Joan Didion, and Samuel Johnson--to reveal the mechanics of how language works on thoughts and emotions, providing the tools to write powerful, more effective sentences.
