Form Redoubled


Structure, Repetitive Requirement, Other Requirement


This is any form that is glossed with the same form. The 210-line sonnet redoubled is an example. For the 20-line sheshire, the sheshire redoubled would be 21 verses or 420 lines. The first stanza or poem form is used as a texte and glossed in the succeeding stanzas or poem units with the individual lines becoming the last lines of the succeeding verses or forms. It can also be done with the texte lines as first lines of the glossing stanzas. Also known as Form Redoublé
