Here is the Wikipedia page about him:




Here is a web form that aids the poet in constructing a sestina:

I just discovered this, thank you so much Marti. I read that the numerical sequence of the end word placement is a mathmatical equation which if you were to write a 7th stanza the sequence of words would go back to be the same as the first stanza. Now I can't find my source. But I have added a link to this post from the Sestina page. It is so cool that you and others provide these interesting side notes that enrich the information in reference section.


Thanks, ~~Tink
