The idea of this column is to help you, as a writer and member of PnP, to better understand poetry forms and some of the history behind it. I hope you find this to be informative and interesting. If you have a style you would like me to address, please let me know. I will do my best to hit all of your favorites along with some of the unknowns. With that being said, please enjoy.
