Overview

Created in North America, Europe, and the Middle East, 21st Century Sonnets is where the Shakespearean sonnet remains timeless! Marvel inside a Swiss castle; find a gold coin on the sandy shore of the Mediterranean; poetically examine the Dead Sea scrolls; and discover a wealth of poetic devices including secret acrostics, internal rhyme, allegory, alliteration, allusion, apostrophe, personification, metaphor, simile, myth, and much, much more! Sonnet sequences (and intra-sonnet forms including psalms, limericks, and quatrains of condensed meter) are Stephen Volk's expansions to the foundational Shakespearean sonnet. He won American national competitions and first place from a Member of Parliament in Canada. After reading 21st Century Sonnets a contemporary writes, "I just blew back, irradiated, from the utopiessence of your realm . . . kadzooks, such a treasure for the spying, sir! Who are you; from which celestial station did you fall? Well, no matter, that. Your words wide-cast the remnant radiation for us all."
