This course charts the emergence of the sonnet in Italy with Cecco Angiolieri, Dante and Petrarch. We go on to trace its development in English, Wyatt and Surrey, and take a look at the first sonnet sequence written by Anne Locke, before considering the development through Spenser, Shakespeare and Milton, the Romantics, and into the modern world.
