While studying Shakespeare's sonnets, something occured to me. How was the English Sonnet invented? Isn't a sonnet an unchangeable form? If that can be done to create certain new possibilities in poetry, why can't it be done again?
I came up with this new formula for the 14 lines: 5+4+3+2... That way, an author can choose to create a sonnet that starts with a simpler idea in 2 lines and expands, or a longer, 5-line idea that boils down to a 2-line stanza. One can also imply a sense of immutability to an idea, with a 3-line stanza, or mutability, in four lines.
Besides this main feature, one can choose to write with a fixed bumber of syllables, which may have a meaning as well, or not; to write in very poetic language, very mundane, or mix the two when the author sees fit. I call this form a Brazilian Sonnet.
This is the second book to use this new form of the sonnet. The first in English.
