About

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, 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.

* With one quarter of a year being 13 weeks, it’ll actually take me a year and a month.
