This review is from: 101 Sonnets: From Shakespeare to Heaney (Paperback)
This is a collection of sonnets, reflecting a host of different poetic styles from the sixteenth century (Sidney, Spenser, Shakespeare) up to the present (Craig Raine, Paul Muldoon). Don Paterson's notes and introductory essay are simple and useful. The volume fits in a pocket, and is excellent for carrying around with you. Why would you want to do this? A sonnet is really a bite-sized entertainment.
