A clear account of the development and the scope of the sonnet form in Britain from its introduction by Sir Thomas Wyatt in the early 16th Century to its later use by Milton in the 17th Century, with reference to its importance for the 19th and 20th Century poets.

Description: This book provides a clear account of the development and the scope of the sonnet form in Britain. Each major British writer of sonnets is mentioned, with a brief bibliographical note, a bibliography and a critical assessment with generous quotation of sonnets. A short account of the invention and development of the sonnet in Italy begins the book. The study is designed for students with no special knowledge of the subject and gives advice for further study.
