A collection of brazilian sonnets composing the first book in English with this form of sonnet.

Lulu


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.
