This book is a study of the biology of writing. Rhythm, whether in speech or prose, controls the way a text is physically generated and the way it is psychologically perceived. The study of rhythm opens all language to the same fundamental measure, and from this measure emerges a new understanding of the relationships between literacy, literature, and the ability to write well.
