A point I often make about verse novels...


Nobody asked T.S. Eliot, “why didn’t you write THE LOVE SONG OF J. ALFRED PRUFROCK as a novel instead of a poem?”
Go visit Eliot's beautiful verses at POETS.ORG

Or, if you want more reasons to love verse novels, go to the wonderful website WWW.VERSENOVELS.COM where you might see, in the upper right hand corner of the wallpaper, a snippet of a certain ballet book cover...

Did you see that The Marlowe Papers, which is in verse, is up for the Women's Prize for Fiction (Orange Prize) this year?
