Episode Details

This episode explored metrical structure and rhyme in poetry. It also treated the similarities between poetry and music, onomatopoeia, rhythm, free verse, and formal structure. Poet X.J. Kennedy read from his poems and discussed why, in a time when most poets wrote free verse, he preferred to write formal, rhyming poetry.
