It is certainly NOT a "Treasury of Terms & Literary Quotations" as the title promises.
It is certainly NOT a "Treasury of Terms & Literary Quotations" as the title promises. Some very good quotations and a handful of descriptive terms, but not enough to make this superior or even equal to other books on the subject. There's a table of contents that directs you to the various sections and what types of things they describe like shapes, colors, texture, landscape, and LOTS of information for a variety of character types/traits. It's similar to a thesaurus but when you lack the basic ideas or run dry on a starting point for describing things, this is an excellent book that will help springboard your ideas.

Grambs has divided the book into sections which make finding the type of word you're looking for pretty easy.
Grambs has divided the book into sections which make finding the type of word you're looking for pretty easy. I also like the way Grambs uses literary quotations on the page opposite the words to show writers at work. labwriter, March 30, 2010.
It is readily recognized by the orange-yellow ruff, brown back and blackish wings but otherwise straw-yellow body. With tall pointed ears, long foxy face and large, dark, intelligent eyes it is an attractive animal. SWEENEY, Grappling with a Griffon The tadpoles in the quiet bay of the brook are now far past the stage of inky black little wrigglers attached by their two little sticky pads to any stick or leaf, merely breathing through their gills, and lashing with their.

Have you ever found yourself grasping in vain for that ideal descriptive word lost somewhere within the misty recesses of your vocabulary? Or felt frustrated that an oddly shaped structure or pretty setting you wished to portray in writing didn't quite translate clearly to paper?If the answer to either of these questions is yes, then The Describer's Dictionary is exactly the book you need. Open it, and you have not only just the right words but―bringing them to life―stellar literary examples of descriptive writing as well. The Dictionary concern itself with the observable, from shapes to buildings to human beings. "Referably" organized, the book uses a handy reverse, definition-to-term format that makes it easy to zero in on the term you're seeking. For example, look up "Noses" to find "aquiline," "leptorrhine," and "snub-nosed." And as an inspiration to any writer―showing how it's done by the best―hundreds of colorful and evocative descriptive passages from such diverse authors as Dickens, Darwin, and Updike appear on facing pages, making this a singularly and richly different kind of reference book. The craft of description lives in literature, conversation, journalism, and personal letters. For help in painting pictures with the English language, The Desciber's Dictionary is one of the most indispensable reference tools you can own.
