Before I begin to post my own sonnets on this page, I would like to introduce you to the project my friend Jen and I started this year - and the history behind it.
In the 1800s, poets used to hold "competitions" of sorts, each vying to be the first to finish 100 sonnets. A poet who had written 100 sonnets was said to have written "a century of sonnets."
My fellow writing friend, Jen DeBellis, and I decided to relive the tradition of the long ago, and our challenge is to each write 100 sonnets within this year. You can find Jen's work on her blog: http://jenshead1.blogspot.com/
I'll be posting my Century of Sonnets as it progresses, but only sonnets relevant to this particular blog. I hope you will read them with an open mind, as I'm a mere student in the wonderful literary world.
