to pose! This liberating form distracts
my inner critics dark censorious stare."
The Sonneteer is a narrative poem told in the form of a series of daily sonnets sent as e-mails from Will to Adelia, both graduate students at a Canadian university. It consists of 195 Shakespearean sonnets, written between Midsummer's Day 2009 and the Spring equinox 2010.
The Sonneteer provides examples of:
- Author Tract: a number of the poems reflect the author's own concerns regarding the issues of the day, and are only peripherally linked to the narrative.
- Does Not Like Men
- Love at First Sight
- Love Makes You Crazy
- The Power of Love
- Woman Scorned: Not entirely intentionally
