Long Live Prosody!

Prosody is the musical rhythm of poetry, the “rules”of writing you have to know it order to break.
Stephen Fry’s The Ode Less Travelled was the first title on prosody, and a thoroughly jovial manner of delivery made the rules easier to remember.

Now I find a search in Amazon Books yeilds a copious list of titles dedicated to prosody.
Here are the first three I found…
