During some research for Nan's sestina workshop I came across a reference to a particularly interesting creature called the double sestina.  I am interested in knowing the end word format for this thing.  All I know about it is that a poet named "Swinburne" wrote one called "The Complaint of Lisa".  If anyone can help me with this I would be most appreciative.  I haven't had any luck in locating it myself.  Thanks.

Jim - I have no idea, but your post looked really lonely...so I thought I'd nudge it up to the top for fun...

His picture isn't squished, though - and that's a good thing....
Now - about the double-trouble sestina????

For anyone interested, I posted some information on the double sestina in the Poetry Workshop.  It's a beast but anyone who likes a challenge will like it.

P.S.  Thanks, Nan, for the help on the pic.  Hope seeing me is "better" rather than "worse".
