  11. 11. Poetic Form: Villanelle <ul><li>“ A poem of fixed form, usually of a pastoral or lyric nature, consisting normally of five three-lined stanzas and a final quatrain, with only two rhymes throughout.” (OED) </li></ul><ul><li>Can be traced back as far as 1586 </li></ul><ul><li>Medieval and Renaissance villanelles were simple ballad-like songs with no fixed form or length. Such songs were associated with the country and were thought to be sung by farmers and shepherds, in contrast to the more complex madrigals associated with sophisticated city and court life. </li></ul><ul><li>The French word villanelle comes from the Italian word villanella , which derives from the Latin villa (house) and villano (farmhand); to any poet before the mid-nineteenth century, the word villanelle or villanella would have simply meant country song , with no particular form implied. (Wikipedia = source) </li></ul>
