>Being astonished is not an explanation. How the fuck did people write the Iliad by being sincere? Were they sitting there, fighting with the gods? How are historical novels ever written? Do people travel in time? I'm not one of your mongoloid artsy one-night stands (male or female): use an argument, not rhetoric.

I just cannot figure out this whole metre thing.

What's an iamb? What's a trochee? I mean I know the literal dictionary definitions, but WHAT are they? Can you have iambic quadametre? Sexametre? I have great difficulty in identifying stressed and unstressed syllables.
HEEEELP ARGHUGH
Perhaps I'll just stick with Doctor Seuss rhyme.

Single best book on the rules and fundamentals of the English language? Something that covers everything in detail, from the most basic grammar to the subtle art of rhetoric and is also maybe a style guide.

Yeah I'm a retard but my education was colossally shite.
I honestly can't tell you what a noun is, or the difference between a verb and an adverb, and nor can I name a single rhetorical device.

What's the absolute stupidest advice on writing you've read or heard?

Mine was from someone well read, capable of appreciating Shakespeare and Milton, but not capable of appreciating Orwell. I asked her for writing advice before and she gave me a bunch of gobbledygook about how if I got the impulse to write, don't hesitate, just seize it, even if a voice inside says you shouldn't, and write as hard as I can over and over until I'm satisfied and it's all on paper. I said how do you know that would be good? She said, Well why don't you find out? This was seriously disappointing to me because she studies this a lot, but tgat sounded like bs out of a self help book.

Can I get some recommendations for books that are like daytime TV soap operas with all of the melodramatic family and relationship drama they're known for. I have read all of Tolstoy and Dostoevsky.
