Here's a request for some poetry by Rudyard Kipling
, from scottcstoness
Scott(?), one of the problems with poetry (for the Reader when one reads in regualar book-mode) deals with line breaks. This can mess up - well, sometimes, anyway - the mental scansion that occurs as we read poetry, marking off mental accents, meter, etc., things that help us read [scan] what we read, which of course has an effect upon how
we read verse. ---- What I'm trying to say is that the way a page is percieved visually can sometimes upset the mental scansion that happens.
I tried to solve that - but only partially, I realize - by reducing the font to size "9." I've always had my font set at "10." If this is too small for you, you can enlarge it. You can also read in horizontal mode.
If point-size "9" doesn't work for you, please let me know
and I'll enlarge it back to size "10."
Anyway, this was fun to do. I'm almost finished with a long book of prose by him and, as you know, much of his work has poetry, proverbs, etc. interspersed within his writing. BUT RIGHT NOW, I'M GOING TO GO AND GET A DRINK!!!
