Heroic Crown of Sonnets

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.

Eternally Yours First published on Hello Poetry by Joel Frey in 2012.
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
