Much of this third collection of Wild Sonnets was written under the shadow of the Covid 19 pandemic, but the poems published here range far beyond this traumatic event in theme and focus. One of my favorite Wild Sonnets is #234 and it has a special place in not only in this volume, but in the entire collection. The remainder of the 100 poems in this volume have their own music and meaning, and speak in their own way to what is timeless in us all.


Reviews for The Wild Sonnets: Volume III (201-300)

Verbal Art at its Finest
In these beautiful sonnets, Mr. Korn has succeeded on multiple levels simultaneously. He makes intelligent use of the English language, delving into its wide selection of word choices to create thought-provoking lines adroitly adorned with artful alliteration, that is available in the tongue especially, perhaps more than any other. There is great joy here, ready for any reader willing to reach in and indulge. So wait not!

– Stefan W.
