I am currently about half way through and have a question for anyone who cares to answer.

How is it that in America does 'Myth' rhyme with 'with'? Yet they do not rhyme in the Queens tongue?

I have asked a few people from across the pond (yes I am a yank) and they seem baffled by the statement as well.

Hi,

Just like to say thanks for a great book and ask about about your use and definition of the word Poetaster on page 30. I can't seem to find it mentioned in my copy of the on-line version of the Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary I use.

Are you making it up?. If you are, can you get the good folk of Cambridge to add it to their dictionary so this poem I have writen using it doesn't just have people staring blankly at it.

I am just a poetaster who's hoping that one day
both fame and mega fortune, will come along my way.
Until such time, like my friend Rab,
I'm done to death by drink.
I'll post in here, and charge you nowt,
to see just what you think.
If I am just a fantasist, don't hesitate to say,
I'll always be a poetaster until my dying day.

Thanks again for the book, it's inspirational as well as informative. Great work.

I LOVE this book. It is opening up a whole new world. Thank you Stephen Fry. This is the book I always wanted to read (heart).

Aha! This is the box I need. For putting me in touch with Samuel Beckett's Roundelay, which I never would have known about otherwise, thanks. The whole book is fantastic fun, but especially for that. I wish they'd taught poetry like that at school. You know . . . fun.

Sorry.
