Poets have been fascinated and challenged by the sonnet ever since it was imported from Italy to England in the sixteenth century. With its fourteen lines, inexhaustibly variable, it has met particular needs of almost every major poet from Thomas Wyatt to Paul Muldoon. Don Paterson, himself an adept of the form, has devised an anthology that is both a sharing of personal favourites and a celebration of high moments in the sonnet’s history. His introduction and wonderfully insightful notes provide a history and commentary that will prove illuminating to the casual reader and indispensable to the student or aspiring sonneteer.
