SestinaWatch Vol. 5: John Green, Rabbi, Hecht and Fairchild



Sestina spotted in John Green’s Paper Towns. Somebody write a sestina with these end-words already!

Did you hear the one about the rabbi who wrote a sestina after she gave birth? (Sorry, couldn’t resist the joke set-up. It’s a nice column.)

Anthony Hecht’s “Sidney and the Sestina.”

This image (NSFW) elicited giggles at Sestina Headquarters.

“I’ve written two sestina’s in my life,” poet B.H. Faichild tells a college newspaper. “The one I wrote in one day. I’ve been working on ‘The Left-Fielder’s Sestina’ on and off for almost six years.”
