Bibliography

This books can do—nor this alone: they give
New views to life, and teach us how to live;
They soothe the grieved, the stubborn they chastise;
Fools they admonish, and confirm the wise.
Their aid they yield to all: they never shun
The man of sorrow, nor the wretch undone;
Unlike the hard, the selfish, and the proud,
They fly not sullen from the suppliant crowd;
Nor tell to various people various things,
But show to subjects, what they show to kings.

George Crabbe
from"The Library"

The books and publications listed in the annotated bibilography are separated into two categories: those dealing specifically with letter writing, and those that concern grammar and usage.

Under each listing, a brief description is given of the entry. Asterisks indicate books I consider to be especially helpful additions to any professional's reference shelf.
