American Sonnets is an eclectic compilation of 161 sonnets from poets as diverse as Edgar Allan Poe, Emma Lazarus (of the “give me your tired your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free…”), the expected Edna St. Vincent Millay and the unexpected John Quincy Adams.

With sentiments expressed about mid life crisis (Longfellow’s “Mezzo Cammin”), the passing of a loved one (George Santayana’s “To W.P.”) and a dead romance (Edna St. Vincent Millay’s “I shall forget you presently my dear…”) there is a sonnet for everyone for every occasion in this jewel-strewn volume.

American Sonnets belongs in the library of any poetry lover.
