CANTO From the Latin cantus, "song," this is a major division of a lengthy poem. First used by Dante for his Divine Comedy, it was introduced to English writing by Edmund Spenser in The Faerie Queene. See also stanza.

CANZONE Originally an Italian lyric poem consisting of five or six stanzas and an envoi, the canzone came to include polyphonic songs and lyrics that derived from this form but resembled madrigals. In English literature, Thomas Campion was a master of the canzone.
