The Narrative Tenses
http://www.vivquarry.com/wkshts/narrative.html

Неплохой материал по временам глаголов английского, используемым при пересказе.
Про многие вещи давно хотел выяснить подробности, и только сейчас вот нашел.
Например вот это:

Would (+ adverb of frequency) + verb can be used to express past habits which do not happen now.
E.g. My grandfather would always read the newspaper at breakfast time. (He doesn't do it now)

Using 'would' instead of 'used to' often gives an idea of nostalgia. However, if the adverb of frequency is stressed, it can give the idea that the habit was annoying.
E.g. My dog would never do what I wanted it to do!

NOTE! 'WOULD' CAN NOT BE USED FOR PAST STATES!
E.g. I would live in São Paulo. IS WRONG!
