Petrachan/Italian Sonnet Contest


Blog Posted:3/10/2018 3:35:00 PM

I just posted my version (you can do better) of a spring Italain Sonnet. I didn't post this blog in hopes you would comment on it but so that you could see a relative example. If it helps at all--fine---good luck.  BTW, I know that line 8 is short on a half foot of iamb

I've done a few Italian ones in the past. They are a bit more difficult than regular sonnets. Do you not mind if we lose half a foot of iamb in a line then? Sometimes it just happens!

Nope, I don't mind Andrea as long as it's no more than a couple.

I am not very good with the meter stuff. I might try the Italian sonnet though. I noticed you did enclosed rhyme on it. Thanks for dropping by my blog. Sara

Cwaig? Nah. He's repented and reformed his nasty bad boy ways. This is the kinder, gentler Cwaig
