Pantoum Pantaloons!


One of the last poetic forms we're studying this year is the pantoum. This is a French style of poetry that was popular in the 19th and 20th centuries. It's comprised of three quatrains and follows a strict pattern of repetition. It seems difficult at first, but if it's done correctly, even the simplest poem turns out to be pretty spectacular.

We are reaching the end of our journey through the various poetic forms; make sure to continue developing your theme in your genre and art pieces!
