    Review quote
    "Fry's extraordinary book is an idiots' guide to the writing of poetry, a primer, a tutorial with funny turns, an earnest textbook... You can't but marvel at Fry's easy familiarity with the rictameter and the rondeau redouble and applaud the energy of his evangelistic zeal" Independent on Sunday "With his usual wit and occasional obscenity, he takes us through an array of metrical forms and poetic structures, talking to us like a cajoling hearty teacher" Sunday Telegraph "Intelligent and informative, a worthy enterprise well executed" Observer "A smart, sane and entertaining return to basics" Daily Telegraph "Funny and instructive" Spectator
