Details

From its first appearance in the pages of De Aetna (an essay about climbing Mount Etna) in 1494, the semicolon has undergone a ‘transformation from a mark designed to create clarity to a mark destined to create confusion’. Cecelia Watson delves into the history of punctuation rules and our anxieties about them; she examines examples of how great writers have used semicolons creatively; and shows how this humble punctuation mark can enrich your reading and improve your writing.
