1.  “Any unit of recurring meter and rhyme–or variants of them–used in an established pattern of repitition and separation in a single poem.”
2.  Can be made up of lines of the same length- called an isometric stanza.
3.  Can be made up of lines of varying lengths- called a heterometric stanza.
4.  Can be a loose grouping of lines and paragraphs of verse–quasi-stanzaic.
5.  “The effect of the stanza is gained by the combination of accumulating sense, from stanza to stanza, combined with repeated sound through the repetition of lineation and rhyming.”
Strand and Boland, The Making of a Poem, page 136
