Novel of the week: The Anthologist by Nicholson Baker
So a lot is at stake for Chowder, who, by the way, thinks that Staying Alive might be the best poetry anthology ever. I like Paul Chowder. Baker is an experimental novelist — one of his works is entirely a record of phone sex — and although The Anthologist is experimental too, it does have a plot. An anthologist spends so long failing to write an introduction to his anthology of rhymed poetry that his girlfriend leaves him.
Will he finish the introduction? Will his girlfriend come back? You might have to be especially interested in music and prosody to find it all that exciting, but if you are, you will. To take the latter book: Paul Chowder loves it but disagrees with Fenton about iambic pentameter.

He keeps us in suspense. His idea of a line having an upbeat is exactly right.
But soon we realise his ear favours a line with four beats in it rather than five. He looks at the lyrics of some recent hip-hop and club anthems to make his point.
He blames Chaucer for introducing pentameter from French writers. But Chowder ignores dramatic verse completely and only mentions Milton once, without considering what that king of enjambement was up to.

A god of small things. And another thing, Chowder: you have an exquisite ear for analysing verse and for explaining its purely musical effects.
