What Makes a Sonnet a Sonnet? With Rebecca Foust

25.00

Fourteen lines do not a sonnet make.  What are the necessary and sufficient qualities that a poem must exhibit in order to “earn” the title?  In the words of Molly Peacock: “Is there a 21st century sonnet?  Is there an American Sonnet?  Why has the sonnet persisted, ebullient and lively, after six centuries?  How has it renewed itself?  More importantly, how has it renewed poetry and poets?” This class will examine the contemporary sonnet in its myriad and exciting interactions with and departures from traditional forms.
