I'm looking for a website that will give me the run-down on rules and definitions of all your basics types of poems. (as in a sonnet or a haiku)
I'm sure there is a good one out there....can ya tell me?
Yes - somewhere on this forum there's a thread listing about a dozen of them.
Do a net search for "poetry + forms" and you'll find some right away. Another way is to search for "villanelle + sonnet + meter." (Plus whatever form you're curious about at the moment.)
The forms I am curious about cannot be discussed in a public forum !
(see...even SHORT threads turn this way)
Talia, this is probably the thread Marian was referring to above:
Read throught Hugh Clary's posts and you should find the information you need.

Talia, I think I might have found the link you need to find the different styles. It was listed by Hugh in the Resource Central thread. Scan down the listings at the following site until you come to "Genres", that should contain the information you seek:
Thanks Hugh, after looking at the listings on the site I mentioned above, they seemed awfully sparse. Yours is much more comprehensive.
Thank you all!
