Just a quick link to Abbeville Manuel of Style blog, where they have had a feature called “Editing the Classics.” The challenge is to whittle away at a famous passage while still keeping the foundation intact, of course. Very enjoyable for minimalists like me, I have to admit. Here is the Gettysburg Address entry, which I happened to win. I hope they keep this going, it’s great fun.
