Most amusing and useful guide to... yes... Poetry
The amount of knowledge Stephen Fry has amassed in his brain must cause him severe headaches. How wonderful he shares yet another morsel of his wisdom with us. A guide on how to analyse but also write poetry, to give an insight eg. into the difference between talent and technique - and the importance of both - took my back to my German A Levels. What a surprise that seemingly dull subjects can be dealt with in an amusing still knowledge inducing matter? I downloaded this audiobook thinking "I love everything Stephen Fry writes and know everything else on Audible." Now I think that if he chose to write more schoolbooks, how happily children would learn, how open would their minds be to looking at everything from any angle they can think of! I'll end on a pathetic fangirling note - I LOVE Stephen Fry! :)
