Other Literary Forms
Though best remembered for two children’s books, Charlotte’s Web (1952) and Stuart Little (1945), E. B. White was noted during his lifetime for humorous essays and light poetry. His phenomenally successful revision and expansion of William Strunk’s textbook The Elements of Style (1959) is a publishing legend. In 1981, a miscellany, Poems and Sketches of E. B. White, was published.
