Sonnet

As you have studied the sonnet form in some depth, complete a sonnet comparison of 500−750 words: Sonnets have been a popular form of poetry since their introduction. You can find various types of sonnets in modern-day literature. Sonnets are carefully written, with each word having meaning and purpose.

Pick two sonnets to analyze; one taken from the readings, and one of your choice that was written between 1900 and the present.

Analyze the two sonnets by comparing and contrasting the sonnet form, including, but not limited to, purpose, rhyme scheme, and structure.

Include a full copy of both sonnets used after the References page. (The sonnets are not part of the total word count.)
