Glose

Type:  

Structure, Repetitive Requirement, Other Requirement

 
Description: 

A glose starts with a texte and comments on it through expanded discussion. In other words, it takes the texte, which may be a stanza of any number of lines and then creates a stanza for each of those lines. The stanzas do not have to be the same number of lines as the texte. The sonnet redoubled is a form of glose. The text line appears as a repeton at the end of the verse that is glossing it.

 
Origin: 

Spanish/Portuguese
