Sonnet's alive

9 July 2016 9.00am 5.00pm


Blackwell Hall, Weston Library (Map)



Shakespeare may be dead, but his special poetic form, the English or Shakespearean sonnet, is very much alive. Poets use it, and adapt it, quarrel with it and fall back on it all the time today because it such a graceful form - and also such a flattering one.

Sonnets make you sound like a genius. Try it out for yourself and visit the Bodleian sonnet tree. Available in the Weston Library and in local libraries across the city.
