    Redondilla Sonnet

    Explore the Craft of Writing Poetry The Sonnet Sonnet Comparison Chart American Verse The Redondilla, Sonondilla, Napoleonic and the Sardine Sonnet are all the same invented sonnet form attributed to the American poet The Dread Poet Robert found at Poetry Base and a few other sites around the internet. It is named for the Redondilla because of the use of the Redondilla quatrain and I suppose it is called the Sardine because the rhyme scheme gives a packed feeling. The other names, I haven't a clue where they came from. The defining feature of this sonnet is the rhyme pattern and shortened meter. The elements of the Redondilla Sonnet are: a quatorzain made up of 2 Redondilla quatrains followed by an envelope sestet. syllabic, in keeping with the Redondilla, the lines are 8 syllables each. However the 8 syllables could also be interpreted as iambic tetrameter. rhymed, rhyme scheme either abba abba ccddcc or abba cddc eeffee.
