Welcome to the world of sestinas—the first anthology celebrating this unique poetic form.
In this collection, you'll find 100 sestinas crafted by a diverse range of writers, including John Ashbery, David Lehman, Matt Madden, and Patricia Smith.
The sestina, a 39-line form, holds a special place in the hearts of poets, bridging the gap between formalists and avant-gardes in a free-verse world.
Its ornate and maddeningly complicated rules of word repetition make it a beloved challenge for poets seeking both structure and innovation.
