I have been studying Petrarchan sonnets. I have already posted a question on three sonnets I am reading about rhyme scheme and volta. I reviewed the websites given and I also did an internet search of my own on Petrarchan sonnets. I have come to the conclusion that all petrarchan sonnets are iambic pentameter and that the volta occurs between lines 8 and 9. Would my conclusions be correct? Thank you for all the help.
