More Description


Stephen Fry's On Poetry provides us with a witty and entertaining guide to the mysteries of writing poetry. TERZA RIMA The terza rima mode is very fine, Great Dante used it for his famous text; It rhymes the words in every other line With each thought drawing you towards the next: A B A B, C B, C D C D...This third B rhyme is not what one expects But terza is Italian for three So terza rima means the thirdmost rhyme: This subtle trick explains, at least to me, Just why this form has stood the test of time.
