First published in 1947, The Reader Over Your Shoulder remains required reading for anyone who wants to write more clearly and artfully. Here editor Alan Hodge and author Robert Graves tells the reader to write as if 'a crowd of prospective readers were looking over their shoulder', anticipating possible questions and criticisms. They identifies the most common blunders writers make and lay out 41 principles showing how to avoid them. Their insights are as fresh as they were 70 years ago, and indispensable to writers of English prose.
