SESTET The sestet is either a six-line poem or poem stanza (e.g., the sestina is built of six sestet stanzas), or it is the last six lines of an Italian (Petrarchan) sonnet. As part of the sonnet, the sestet follows the octave, or first eight lines, and develops a resolution to the poetic situation presented in the octave. It is distinguished from the octave by a new set of rhymes; the octave is usually abba, abba, and the sestet will then follow with cde, cde, though many variants (ccd, ccd; cdc, ede; etc.) are used.
