Question about pantoum and villanelle rhymes
« on: February 12, 2012, 08:06:40 AM »
I'm attempting to write a pantoum and villanelle but I need some advice. When writing the rhymes can they be sight and sound rhymes?

Yep. They be can whatever you like. One of my favourite villanelles is un-rhymed.

Just one caveat though, if you are writing for a school/college project and the teacher/lecturer is a know-nothing-poetry-by-numbers type, then don't stray to far from the traditional.

It's open university Mark and the tutor is heavily into poetry. I'll probably go with traditional form and see what happens in later drafts. I'll post something soon. Thanks Mark.
