Fourteen, a sonneteer thy praises sings;
What magic myst’ries in that number lie!
Your hen hath fourteen eggs beneath her wings
That fourteen chickens to the roost may fly.

-Robert Burns

 

In this Delve, we’ll look at what has made the sonnet such a popular and enduring form across centuries and continents, from its medieval Italian roots to its contemporary branches.

Reading List: Sonnets, edited by John Hollander (Everyman 2001 edition)
