Dichter und technische Redakteure

Unterschiedliche Arten von Schreiben

Schon vor einiger Zeit hat mich ein Kollege auf folgendes Zitat aufmerksam gemacht:

Technical writing is very different from the literary writing you learn in most English classes. Consider this passage from Edgar Allan Poe:

To Helen
Helen, thy beauty is to me
Like those Nicean barks of yore
That gently, o’er a perfumed sea,
The weary, way-worn wanderer bore
To his own native shore.

To express these idea in technical writing, we would simply say:
He thinks Helen is beautiful.
