Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. An octave is a verse form consisting of eight lines of iambic pentameter (in English) or of hendecasyllables (in Italian). The most common rhyme scheme for an octave is abba abba. An octave is the first part of a Petrarchan sonnet, which ends with a contrasting sestet. In traditional Italian sonnets the octave always ends with a conclusion of one idea, giving way to another idea in the sestet. Some English sonnets break that rule, often to striking effect. In Milton''s Sonnet 19, the sestet begins early, halfway through the last line of the octave: When I consider how my light is spent Ere half my days in this dark world and wide, And that one talent which is death to hide Lodg''d with me useless, though my soul more bent
