The sonnet may be the loveliest of all poetic forms. In Part I of our program, we will learn all about the sonnet form, and listen to examples by the masters William Shakespeare and Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Did you know that 20th century poet Dylan Thomas also composed sonnets? This poetic form is still used in our present day. As homework, if you wish, you may prepare your own sonnet, to be shared with us when we meet again for Part II of the program.
