The Sonnet provides a comprehensive study of one of the oldest and most popular forms of poetry, widely used by Shakespeare, Milton, and Wordsworth, and still used today by poets such as Seamus Heaney, Tony Harrison, and Carol Ann Duffy. This book combines a broad historical overview of the sonnet with detailed critical analysis to show how the sonnet has achieved its special status and popularity among poets in Britain, Ireland, and America.
