The essence of style …

… Style Reveals the Man by Joseph Epstein | Articles | First Things. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

All the chapters in Style refer back to and fill out the early chapter, “The Foundation of Style—Character,” which gives the book its overarching theme and makes the work unique. In this chapter, Lucas introduces the radical, but quite sensible, notion that character is at the center of good writing, no matter what the form.
