Undawnted has a New Addition to Our Poetry Family: Sonnoquy

Spring is a great time to add to your family. Here at Undawnted, we have added a new spin on a classic structured poetry form. We have named our new bundle of joy: Sonnoquy

What is a sonnoquy?

Sonnoquy is a cross between a Shakespearean sonnet and a soliloquy with ten lines (eight, ten syllable verses, and an ending couplet). 

A soliloquy can be the act of talking to oneself, or a poem, discourse, or utterance of a character in a drama that has the form of a monologue or gives the illusion of being a series of unspoken reflections. 

A sonnet is a fixed verse form of Italian origin, consisting of 14 lines that are typically 5-foot iambics rhyming according to a prescribed scheme.  

Together, a sonnet and soliloquy become a new poetry form in Undawnted's Structured Poetry section

This chapbook has been also added to our Winter Frost Seasonal Reads Program.

Have a great and wonderful day.
