My name is Alex Burrett. I’ve always loved writing and I’ve always loved poems. This project explores the nature of love, the richness of the English language and the noblest poetic form in English literature (the sonnet).

Over the course of a year, I will write four collections of fourteen sonnets.* Each collection will have a different theme. The first theme is personification; each poem in this collection will feature love imagined as a being with human characteristics.

I’ll identify the themes of subsequent collections when I start them.

* With one quarter of a year being 13 weeks, I’ll write two sonnets in the final week of each quarter.
