This first collection of 100 Wild Sonnets, published in 2019, contains some of my favorites from the entire sequence. I had just decided on the two seven-line stanzas to make up the 14 lines of the form, with their rhyming couplets at the close of each – and I think the writing at this stage of the project was uniquely rich and lyrically dense. In later books, I relaxed a little more into the lines – but this initial release strikes me still as uniquely muscular and musical.


Reviews for The Wild Sonnets: Volume I (1-100)

The first of a tradition
What a wonderful endeavor. I’m sure it’s destined to be the first of an epic series.
