Inquiry: STANLEY FISH: How To Write A Sentence and How To Read One

Program: 
Date: 
Tuesday, February 15, 2011 - 12:01pm

If you want to write that next great American novel, STANLEY FISH has a useful and counter intuitive recommendation for you. Don’t begin with the big idea, the grand conception. Instead begin with the sentence. Learn to love well written sentences. Stanley Fish is the Davidson-Kahn University Professor and a professor of law at Florida International University. His new book: HOW TO WRITE A SENTENCE AND HOW TO READ ONE is both about the craft and the pleasure of writing what John Dunne called “a little world made cunningly”. Tune in tonight and hear Professor describe what a sentence really is, how to perfect the art of writing better sentences, and the deep pleasure of reading great first sentences of a novel.
