This volume belongs in the library of everyone who teaches or studies composition theory.... This collection,...drawn from three decades of musings and reflections, demands the attention of anyone seriously interested in teaching writing. (The Quarterly)
With Writing without Teachers (OUP 1975) and Writing with Power (OUP 1995) Peter Elbow revolutionized the teaching of writing. His process method-and its now commonplace "free writing" techniques-liberated generations of students and teachers from the emphasis on formal principles of grammar that had dominated composition pedagogy. This new collection of essays brings together the best of Elbow's writing since the publication of Embracing Contraries in 1987. The volume includes sections on voice, the experience of writing, teaching, and evaluation. Implicit throughout is Elbow's commitment to humanizing the profession, and his continued emphasis on the importance of binary thinking and nonadversarial argument. The result is a compendium of a master teacher's thought on the relation between good pedagogy and good writing; it is sure to be of interest to all professional teachers of writing, and will be a valuable book for use in composition courses at all levels.

Whenever a teacher starts wondering why we have become such a "standardized" nation, he or she should just go back to Peter Elbow's theory of writing. I am using his fundamental theory in my own work and building on it in my my dissertation. Elbow is relatable. He claims that he was never the "best writer" out there and actually had to learn the craft. I love his honesty and humility and common sense approach to teaching composition. This is a must read for all teachers of composition.

Some fine essays though it seems as if part of this collection has been used elsewhere, as in WRITING WITHOUT TEACHERS.
