The classic writing manual, How to Speak and Write Correctly, ranks right up there next to The Elements of Style by Strunk and White. Written in 1910, Joseph Devlin chronicles the evolution of the English language and gives sage grammatical and writing style advice.

The book includes chapters on the essentials of English grammar, literary concepts like mood, figurative language, and voice, punctuation, syntax, and style, and details common writing mistakes even great writers sometimes make. It also contains advice on how to write in various mediums, including newspapers and letters. This advice, of course, seems somewhat outdated 100 years later, yet the principles behind the construction of a clear and grammatical piece of writing remain the same. How to Speak and Write Correctly remains relevant even in the digital age.

Especially interesting are Devlin’s critiques of popular author’s grammar mistakes: Dickens made glaring article errors, Sir Thomas Moore mixed up his pronouns, and Dryden just went ahead and made up words. The subsequent chapter includes the many writing pitfalls to avoid.

The final chapter includes lists of Devlin’s choices for the greatest masterpieces of literature, the greatest English and American poets, the greatest essayists, and the greatest Shakespeare plays. Devlin believed studying and absorbing the classic helps a person become a better writer. The same might be suggested to those looking for a quality writing instruction book: heed Devlin’s advice and you, too, will become a better writer.
