E.B. White writes honestly, fearlessly and clearly

I am continually amazed by and incredibly appreciative of E.B. White's writing, no matter whether his subject is spiders, pigs, roofing the barn, hurricanes, or war. He started writing essays around 1930 and continued for decades; his children's fiction was published about 70 years ago, and his writing is still relevant today with so much to offer current readers.

"Anyone who writes down to children is simply wasting his time. You have to write up, not down. Children are demanding. They are the most attentive, curious, eager, observant, sensitive, quick, and generally congenial readers on earth. They accept, almost without question, anything you present them with, as long as it is presented honestly, fearlessly, and clearly."

White expressed himself that way, honestly, fearlessly, and clearly, in all of his writing, and I always find something new in his honest clarity.

"We should all do what, in the long run, gives us joy, even if it is only picking grapes or doing laundry."

Reading E.B. White's writing, whether it is essays, letters, or fiction, gives me joy and hope.

Things really haven't changed so much

Listening to E.B. White's essays was a good reminder that the world really hasn't changed that much over time. In these many essays, he talks of everything from dogs and birds to community concerns and politics. This was a pleasant departure from a focused storyline that allowed me to simply step back and hear reflections on the day-to-day things.

A beloved voice and master stylist

E. B. White is probably best known for Charlotte's Web, and next for Strunk and White's Elements of Style, the slim Bible for writers. These essays, mainly from his New Yorker days, cover an astonishing range of times and topics, but are all in that spare, elegant, unpretentious voice. His essay on New York is a love letter that resonates to this day, while his accounts of the homely details of farm life are vivid and oddly moving. Some of the political commentary is dated, but that's a minor theme and well worth browsing. The reader is pitch perfect. Highly recommend.
