Brief Definition

The Curtal Sonnet features exactly ten and one half lines of sonnet poetry. The Curtal Sonnet is considered to be not as lengthy as a regular sonnet. In other words the first 8 lines are restructured to 6 lines in the Curtal Sonnet. And the last 6 lines are restructured to four and one half lines. The Curtal Sonnet is three quarters of what a Petrarchan Sonnet would be. The Curtal Sonnet is also called the The Contracted Sonnet because of its shortened structure and style. It carries a rhythmic balance of abcabc dbcdc or abcabc dcbdc. The Curtal Sonnet was created by Manley Hopkins and was inspired by him within 3 of his popular poems. Some of his poems include: 'Ash Boughs', 'Pied Beauty and 'Peace.'

Some poet experts do not consider The Curtal Sonnet to be a true form of sonnets due to is shortened length. However, many will give The Curtal Sonnet validity due to its structure and form.
