On July 11,1989 a man was born named Elywn Brooks White, who would grow up to capture the interest of children and adults alike through his various writings. Among his contributions to American Literature included essays in the New Yorker, his children books and his standard style for manual writing.
Whites well written essays gently satirize the complexities and difficulties of modern way of life. His essays helped establish one of the nation’s most successful general-interest magazines The New Yorker. One of his essays “The Ring of Time” written in 1986 expresses how he felt about segregation.
“Under the bright lights of the finished show, a performer need only reflect the electric candle power that is directed upon him; but in the dark and dirty old training rings and in the makeshift cages, whatever light is generated, whatever excitement, whatever beauty, must come from original sources—from internal fires of professional hunger and delight, from the exuberance and gravity of youth. It is the difference between planetary light and the combustion of stars.”
He also contributed his essay to the Seattle Times and Seattle Post Intelligencer. White was best recognized for his essays and comment pieces.

Stuart Little derived from one of his dreams sleeping on a train. This was White’s first children book he wrote. It was about a young New Yorker who was a shy, pleasant manner of a mouse. Stuart Little is not like any other mouse that we have came in contact with. He’s a mouse who lives in New York City, but most strangely he was born to a family of humans. Stuart lives with his parents, his brother, and his cat Snowbell. Even though he was a shy and caring mouse, he was also a big lover to adventure. In this book it shows how the theme loyalty comes into play. By when Stuart had went out one of the biggest and greatest adventures probably in his life. When a beautiful bird named Margalo had disappeared from her nest one day. He was determined to find her and bring her back. That shows that a true friend would always be there for you. Even if you went missing it shows that they were loyal to you when they were trying to find you.
White did his research on the book Charlottes Web on a near by farm that he own in Maine. Charlottes Web tells a story how a spider name Charlotte and a pig named Wilbur grow to have a wonderful friendship. When one of the sheep from the barn tells Wilbur that he going to be eaten and ate for Christmas dinner he asked Charlotte for advice and to save him. Once again this book shows loyalty when Charlotte spelled wonderful words into her web to show that Wilbur wasn’t just any other pig. That he was a fun and adventurous pig. But if it wasn’t for Charlotte’s efforts by staying loyal to Wilbur he probably would not have lived.
Trumpet of the Swans is about a swan that has a horrible handicap, which he wasn’t able to make a sound. One day his friend the Sam and his father realizes Louis’s problem and they were determined to help. So his father put his pride and honor aside to steal a trumpet for Louis so he would have a voice. Which are dad and friend were being loyal also when they wanted to help him. With that trumpet he won the love of his life Serena. Louis had to have a lot of tolerance that he wasn’t like everybody else and had to accept it. With his determination that he was going to be accepted finally pays off after all the trials and tribulations Louis had to go through.

The Elements of Style was Whites revision of William Stunk Jr. classic style manual. It has become a classic in it own right. This was a writing style guide for American English. This had become one of the best known treatments of grammar and the usage of English in the United States. It first came from eight elementary rules of usage, ten elementary principles of composition, “a few matters of form,” and a list of commonly misused words and expressions.
