Heroic Crown of Sonnets
Here you will find every Sonnet Redouble’, also known as Heroic Sonnet Crown, that I have found published in this century.
Unfortunately, upon analysis of each of these wonderful creations, only “The Gift” is technically qualified as a Sonnet Redouble’, in that none of the others listed have line 14 of Sonnet 14 the same as line 1 of Sonnet 1.
In addition I do not find that every sonnet in each work (Including “The Gift” exhibits the required Volta). So I still await a technically correct Heroic Crown of Sonnets. – March 16, 2014.
All work listed after the Warrior’s Tale seem to be technically conforming.

It strikes me as the best work here. Joel has created a ballad in a Heroic Crown, filled with allusion, alliteration, vivid visual story-telling and poetic devices too numerous to mention. Bravo
