Okay I figured out my question that I posted before. But can you please explain to me what this means? Style is not applied to writing. It is the writing. I don't understand what that means. Thank You

  • English -

    Style is the writing that you read. Style is the choice of words the author uses.

  • English -

    Consider these words from Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar."

    "Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears;
    I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him;
    The evil that men do lives after them,
    The good is oft interred with their bones, "

    Someone might say the same thing, using these words:

    "Hey, Dudes!
    Caesar's dead, and I won't badmouth him.
    Folks remember the bad things about people. But they don't remember the good things."

    Big difference in style, isn't there?
