I was looking at books on reading and understanding poetry on Amazon, and was pointed at "All the Fun's in how you say a thing, an explanation of meter and versification" https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0821412604/ref=pe_385721_37038051_pd_te_s_gr_im/255-4325365-9015022?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=0821412604&pd_rd_r=7N0YWRQMSWPSS9FTQYRN&pd_rd_w=QV4qx&pd_rd_wg=i8FBm

The reviews are very enthusiastic. It was published in 1999 but doesn't seem to have been reprinted since then ... the price is quite high (around £20).

I'm going to try to get at it through my library. It looks as if it would be really helpful for LV readings. Has anyone read it?

Thanks, Kim;

There are only a few copies around, then. I'm moving home shortly, so won't try and get the book through my local library. I'll go for it after the move.
