An individual Shakespeare sonnet certainly shouldn't be linked (or else we'll have 144 links here eventually). See above (if we keep Shakespare's general sonnets link, i could see keeping this) Probably cut Belongs on Edna. Vincent Millay page, not here. Far too specific resume and involves non-English works Definitely cut Specific and appears to be utter quackers Definitely cut seems easier to navigate than the other Shakespeare site keeper, i guess seems a bit like an ad for a particular magazine, i'd say we should cut. Again, vallance review seems to be getting a lot of attention here. Cut Far too specific - if we include not only links to individual Shakespeare sonnets but individual bits of criticism by no-one-in-particular, this will definitely grow to absurd lengths. Sonnets of Michael.
Keeper, i guess seems awfully specific - if we link to every web archive of sonnets by a famous poet, this list will rapidly grow far larger than the article. More justifiable than the pound poets, since petrarch is so critical to the history of the sonnet. However, this page is a subpage of sonnets. Org, which is already linked. Belongs on the page for Thomas wyatt, not here. A page of Shakespare sonnets makes some sense given the fame of the sonnets, though I say this reservedly. Nonetheless, the elook page looks easier to navigate - in any case, we certainly don't need to link to two different Shakespeare sonnet pages.

Redundancy edit "The form consists of three quatrains of four lines and a couplet of two lines." A quatrain is a four-line stanza; similarly, a couplet is two lines. I've changed this line. 04:10, (UTC) Who invented the sonnet? Edit since giacomo da lentini from the sicilian School is widely credited for inventing the sonnet Segre: 1999; Migliorini: 1984; Bruni: lies 1983 index etc, i added that to the article. His octave rhymes abab, abab (cf.
It seems certain, however, that giacomo preceded guittone d'Arezzo, who was inspired by the sicilians. wikipedius 23:21, (UTC) wikipedia is not a web directory edit so i deleted a bunch of links and they were put back. I certainly didn't mean to offend or start an edit war, but it seems to me like the links section has been growing out of control. Here is the current list with my commentary and suggested cut/no-cut status. Perhaps others could comment and then we can cut as appropriate. A rather amateurish looking site, but it appears to be quite ems okay, but not great.
Well written and informative - nice one!- sam 23:43, (UTC) I thought sonnets were supposed to be in iambic pentameter, but the article makes no mention of this. Tualha 19:25, (UTC) Yes, i was also taught that sonnets were 'supposed' to be in iambic pentameter- but remember: this is poetry, so not everybody follows the 'rules.' i'd also like to take this opportunity to mention that the poem provided as an example for. I know a lot of poets mess around with the last sestet, but I think that the example should reflect what the article says. In addition, i think the article should mention that it is common for poets to play around with the rhyme scheme of the last sestet. frazzydee 18:16, (UTC) The article is also incorrect in saying that hendecasyllables are the usual line for sonnets in the romance languages. I have read sonnets only in Italian, French and English, but based on the two romance languages of these, i can say that the Italians use the hendecasyllable line, and call it endecasyllabo, but the French, for example baudelaire, use their usual so-called Alexandrine (Alexandrine.
The Alexandrine alternates between a twelve-syllable line with a masculine ending, like "Je te donne ces vers afin que si mon nom" (first line of a baudelaire sonnet) and thirteen-syllable lines with a feminine ending, like "Abord heureusement aux Epoques lointaines" (second line of the. It's because of the difference between masculine endings (a masculine rhyme in English would be mart/tart) and feminine endings (martyr/tartar) that the feminine lines have that extra thirteenth syllable at the end. The French do have sonnets in ten-syllable lines, alternating with eleven syllable lines, but they also have sonnets in eight-syllable lines alternating with nine-syllable lines: the "hendecasyllable" is strictly Italian, where almost almost all the rhymes are feminine - unless there's something about Spanish sonnets. Sorry, i didn't sign my posting about baudelaire, french Alexandrines, and so on just above. Chessw 23:35, (UTC)chessw Much Spanish poetry uses hendecasyllable (endecasílabo in Spanish though Alexandrines (Alejandrinos) are also used, and of course there are also sonnets that aren't in meter (though that's much mroe modern). The "Bob" and "Wheel" of Spencer's sonnets should be explained in this article!

( see shakespearean sonnet. It is also known pdf as Elizabethan sonnet.) A classic rule of thumb for the writing or reading of a shakespearean sonnet is to have the final couplet make a sharp thematic or imagistic "turn." Along with his wonderful plays, Shakespeare is well known for his. Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds, Or bends with the remover to remove. O no, it is an ever fixed mark That looks on tempests and is never shaken; It is the star to every wand'ring barque, whose worth's unknown although his height be taken. Love's not time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks Within his bending sickle's compass come; love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, but bears it out even to the edge of doom. If this be error and upon me proved, i never writ, nor no man ever loved. See shakespeare's Sonnets for details. See also The current article is very good!
In its original 13th-century Italian variant the writing sonnet was divided into a octave of eight lines and a sestet of six lines. The octave rhymed abbaabba. For the sestet there were different possibilities like cdecde, cdccdc, or cdedce. The most famous writer of Italian sonnets is Petrarch. In the sixteenth century the sonnet became popular in England. The form changed to three quatrains of four lines and a couplet of two lines. Usual rhyme schemes were abab cdcd efef gg and abab bcbc cdcd. One of the first poets to write sonnets in English was Sir Thomas wyatt.
and work, for no fool's paradise should we enter, but be cautious in what we engage. Although bold and determined, not berserk, and level-headedness always prefer. If this course rightly we hope to begin. An example of a petrach sonnet ending in cdcdcd is as follows: "Accountable time". Our time accounted we should consider, for it is the means by which we succeed, And if to its transitions we take heed, many obstacles may we then deter. This is a point to which if we refer, And if success is to accrue indeed, It can then to our means truly concede, enabling their success to thus occur. Do not responsible reviews forsake, or forget that we should not be deceived, If we can an astute existence make, so can a careful outlook be achieved. If we a method advisable take, results advisable can be received. N.P de:Sonett nl:Sonnet fr:sonnet ja: The sonnet is a traditional poem of 14 lines following a strict rhyme scheme, that has changed during its history.
This, however, cannot be strictly accurate, for although Petrach was reported to have produced examples of these, there is little doubt that their styles were in vogue before his time. Both these two types of sonnet have the same stem. Its rhyme pattern being:. One version then continues. An example of the first version (i.e. Ending in cdecde is as japanese follows: "a year From Now". A year from now, who knows what then could be? Amazing transformation in career.
