Homework Help: Grammar

Posted by Jack on Tuesday, September 11, 2007 at 5:21pm.

Is it disallowed or simply awkward to write in the order SUBJECT VERB, as in "Try I did, but to no avail"?

Also, I can't figure out what role 'did' plays in this sentence but I'm quite sure it's necessary.
Is it there only to assert the past tense?

(I'm writing an essay and wondered if a bit of artistic license such as that is permissible.)
