The Development of the Sonnet: An Introduction


In this indispensable introductory study of the Renaissance sonnet, Michael R.G.Spiller takes the reader on an illuminating guided tour. He begins with the invention of the sonnet in thirteenth-century Italy and traces its progress through to the time of Milton, showing how the form has developed and acquired the capacity to express lyrically ‘the nature of the desiring self’. In doing so Spiller provides a concise critical account of the major British sonnet writers in relation to the sonnet’s history.
This volume is tailor-made for students’ needs and will be an essential purchase for anyone studying this enduring poetic form. Poets covered include:
Petrarch - Spenser
Wyatt- Dante
Sidney -Milton
