Question: How are parallel structures used differently in different kinds of prose?

Answer: “Based on an extensive computer-aided examination of representative published American writing, this book examines and compares how various kinds of prose employ the diverse forms of parallelism.” MP Hiatt. 1875. P. 291.

Comment: Might not be of interest to my readers, but it is to me. I consider the use of parallel structures a hall mark of smooth style in writing. The full citation is Artful Balance: The Parallel Structures of Style. MP Hiatt. New York: Teachers College Press. 1975. RayS.
