What is this {compound noun}, and is it grammatically correct?


I am in the process of writing a literary work and for some reason I seem to remain "unglued" about these two words used in this way...


It starts....{in quotes}

Bespoken by the wordsmith’s prose, the “Journal of Michael”...

Now, my understanding is “Bespoken” is the past participle of Bespeaks…meaning that which follows in the “Journal of Michael” belongs to “Bespoken”.


I get this “The word ‘prose’ may not agree with the rest of the sentence” when I check it.


My understanding is by definition a wordsmith is of smithery being a “skilled user of words”, and as such a noun, and “prose” being an adjective describing what the wordsmith is doing-ordinary writing. Or, is it a compound noun, so I remain confused.


If you reply please explain this as clearly as I have, so I may understand if I am being a clever user of these words correctly strung, or I am just grammatically incorrect, and therefore needs a rethink, because, simply put; I like the string as it is.


:-) Michael
