B Pepinesqabout this book: I expect you have heard of Shakespeare and probably Macbeth. If not I am intrigued that you are reading this. Were you attracted to the title because of the ternacci poetry form? For those of you who do not know what a ternacci poem is, a quick explication:
A Ternacci is a fixed poetic form and consists of three lines:-
The first line of eight syllables.
The second and middle line has five syllables.
And the third and last line has three syllables.
Within the Ternacci the language and content is open to free expression. Without this fixed form of three lines and a syllabic count of 8-5-3 the poetic form is not a Ternacci. I offer you a quick example:
One day reading a ternacci –
three birds overhead –
So there you have it. Let me follow on with three questions.
Were you entertained? Did you find it challenging? Were you surprised?
When I was writing Shakespeare Resumed I was anticipating the eventual reader would be able to answer all of those three questions with Yes.
