The PDF document presented here brings together in one convenient file some of my main prosodic studies, together with the new texts that resulted from them. Each of the texts also has the metrical markings included wherever appropriate, and an index of the metres (as well as other indexes).

There is inevitably some repetition involved as these files were originally produced as seperate works, but I think that there is a real advantage in bringing this material together in one place.
