Shakespeare's sonnets When English sonnets were introduced by Thomas Wyatt — in the early 16th century, his sonnets and those of his contemporary the Earl of Surrey were chiefly translations from the Italian of Petrarch and the French of Ronsard and others.
Having previously circulated in manuscripts only, both poets' sonnets were first published in Richard Tottel 's Songes and Sonnetts, better known as Tottel's Miscellany It was, however, Sir Philip Sidney 's sequence Astrophel and Stella that started the English vogue for sonnet sequences.
These sonnets were all essentially inspired by the Petrarchan tradition, and generally treat of the poet's love for some woman, with the exception of Shakespeare's sequence of sonnets.
The form is often named after Shakespeare, not because he was the first to write in this form but because he became its most famous practitioner. The form consists of fourteen lines structured as three quatrains and a couplet.
The third quatrain generally introduces an unexpected sharp thematic or imagistic "turn", the volta. In Shakespeare's sonnets, however, the volta usually comes in the couplet, and usually summarizes the theme of the poem or introduces a fresh new look at the theme.
With only a rare exception, the meter is iambic pentameter. This example, Shakespeare's " Sonnet ", illustrates the form with some typical variances one may expect when reading an Elizabethan-age sonnet with modern eyes: Note changes in pronunciation since composition.
The Prologue to Romeo and Juliet is also a sonnet, as is Romeo and Juliet's first exchange in Act One, Scene Five, lines —, beginning with "If I profane with my unworthiest hand" and ending with "Then move not while my prayer's effect I take" Spenserian[ edit ] A variant on the English form is the Spenserian sonnet, named after Edmund Spenser c.
The linked rhymes of his quatrains suggest the linked rhymes of such Italian forms as terza rima. This example is taken from Amoretti: B And happy lines on which, with starry light, B Those lamping eyes will deign sometimes to look, C And read the sorrows of my dying sprite, B Written with tears in heart's close bleeding book.
C And happy rhymes! D Leaves, lines, and rhymes seek her to please alone, E Whom if ye please, I care for other none. E 17th century[ edit ] In the 17th century, the sonnet was adapted to other purposes, with John Donne and George Herbert writing religious sonnets see John Donne's Holy Sonnetsand John Milton using the sonnet as a general meditative poem.
Both the Shakespearean and Petrarchan rhyme schemes were popular throughout this period, as well as many variants. English Romantic sonnets The fashion for the sonnet went out with the Restorationand hardly any sonnets were written between and Wordsworth's time.
However, sonnets came back strongly with the French Revolution. Wordsworth himself wrote hundreds of sonnets, of which amongst the best-known are " Upon Westminster Bridge ", " The world is too much with us " and " London, " addressed to Milton; his sonnets were essentially modelled on Milton's.
Keats and Shelley also wrote major sonnets; Keats's sonnets used formal and rhetorical patterns inspired partly by Shakespeare, and Shelley innovated radically, creating his own rhyme scheme for the sonnet " Ozymandias ".
Sonnets were written throughout the 19th century, but, apart from Elizabeth Barrett Browning 's Sonnets from the Portuguese and the sonnets of Dante Gabriel Rossettithere were few very successful traditional sonnets.
