Annotation

From the invention of the alphabet to the explosion of the internet, Dominic Wyse takes us on a unique journey into the process of writing. Starting with seven extraordinary examples that serve as a backdrop to the themes explored, it pays particular attention to key developments in the history of language, including Aristotle's grammar through socio-cultural multimodality, to pragmatist philosophy of communication. Analogies with music are used as a comparator throughout the book, yielding radically new insights into composition processes. The book presents the first comprehensive analysis of the Paris Review Interviews with the world's greatest writers such as Louise Erdrich, Ted Hughes, Marilynne Robinson and Gabriel Garcia Márquez.

Full Description

As a subject of research, writing has been relatively neglected in favour of verbal language and reading. This book is a new analysis of the process of writing. It explains how the world's greatest authors write; critiques the best guides to writing; and presents new research on creativity and writing.
