sonnets


The sonnet is an early form, brought into English from Petrarch. The form remains alive. Great masters include Spenser and Shakespeare. Modern masters include Tony Harrison.

My sonnets range from pure Shakespearian, to grammar abuse, making a sonnet the centrepiece of what is otherwise free–form, and even keeping to Shakespearian word count and rhymes but changing the line structure.
