The word prosody travelled into English from the ancient Greek prosoidía via the Middle French prosodie. Its main meanings relate to poetry (and literature more generally) and linguistics, and where literature is concerned it ‘studies the rhythmic structure of prose and verse … as a component in rhetorical processes or constructions or as an aspect of poetic form’. Prosody focuses on how language may be governed in literary works and, in doing so, its traditional emphasis is on versification – the accepted rules of which have varied a great deal across cultures and over time. This collection comprises five chapbooks, each 21 pp; and a 24 page colophon including introduction and 5 research statements.
