Inhaltsangabe

Stephen Fry believes that if you can speak and read English, you can write poetry. But it is no fun if you don't know where to start or have been led to believe that anything goes.

Stephen, who has long written poems, and indeed has written long poems, for his own private pleasure, invites you to discover the incomparable delights of metre, rhyme and verse forms.

Whether you want to write a Petrarchan sonnet for your lover's birthday, an epithalamion for your sister's wedding or a villanelle excoriating the government's housing policy, The Ode Less Travelled will give you the tools and the confidence to do so.

Brimful of enjoyable exercises, witty insights and simple step-by-step advice, The Ode Less Travelled guides the listener towards mastery and confidence in the Mother of the Arts.

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! :)
