One of the oldest literary forms of the post-classical world, the sonnet has engaged nearly every well-known poet writing in a Western language. This collection reveals how each writer, from William Wordsworth to Wilfred Owen, met the challenge of transforming an inherited pattern of convention. The result is a living conversation between past and present. In her introduction, Levin traces the origins of the sonnet back to Italy, and follows its development from the Elizabethan era to the Romantic and Victorian, later discussing its popularity among the poets of the Great War.
