About

My name is Alex Burrett. I’ve loved poems since nursery [rhymes]. This project explores the nature of love, the richness of the English language and the noblest poetic form in English literature… the sonnet.

Over 14 months in 2021 & 2022, I wrote four collections of fourteen sonnets.

Each collection has a different theme. The first theme is Personification, the second Forms of Love (inspired by the several Ancient Greek words for love), the third Ages and Sins (Shakespeare’s seven ages of man plus the seven deadly sins), and the final is Love Letters (letters to things I love/d).

Please comment on sonnets that capture your imagination.
