Stephen.

The presenter makes the interesting comment " it's a matter of balance between rules and chaos " . I suspect that it is equally deadly in poetry to insist on a legalistic, rigid rule keeping as it is to have anything goes. He also said that poetry does not have to rhyme. As he said, balance.

An interesting article, thanks for that.
