Spanish Verse

The Octava Real is the Spanish version of the Ottava Rima. This 14th century stanzaic form, like its Italian counterpart, is a narrative, often telling the story of important events.

The elements of the Octava Real are:

  1. stanzaic, written in any number of octaves.
  2. hendecasyllabic, written in 11 syllable lines.
  3. rhymed, abababcc.
  4. a narrative, tells a story.
