1 Sonnets I Love Sonnets

2 Sonetto: little song, or sound

3 Francesco Petrach, Rime Sparse 190 Edmund Spenser, Amoretti 67 Sir Philip Sidney, Astrophil and Stella 52

4 francesco petrarca ( ) Father of the Renaissance Humanism Wrote in the Tuscan vernacular

5 the petrarchan sonnet Rime Sparse means scattered rhymes Sonnet sequences: series of love poems written by an unfulfilled, melancholy lover to a detached, chaste mistress The Petrarchan Sonnet adopted by the English

6 14 lines divided into two clear parts, an opening octet (8 lines) and a closing sestet (6 lines) A fixed rhyme scheme (abbaabba cdecde) Often the octet will pose a problem or paradox which the sestet will resolve. Volta: turn, or shift in thought that separates the octet from the sestet

7 Una candida cerva sopra lerba verde mapparve con duo corna doro, fra due riviere allombra dun alloro, levando l sole a la stagione acerba. Era sua vista sì dolce superba 5 chi lasciai per seguirla ogni lavoro, come lavaro che n cercar tesoro con diletto laffano disacerba. Nessun mi tocchi, al bel collo dintorno scritto avea di diamanti et di topazi. 10 Libera farmi al mio Cesare parve. Et era l sol già vòlto al mezzo giorno, gli occhi miei stanchi di mirar, non sazi, quand io caddi ne lacqua et ella sparve.

10 edmund Spenser ( ) Wrote criticism, The Faerie Queene 1594 m. Elizabeth Boyle, 2nd wife Amorettisequence of 89 sonnets about his courtship and marriage

11 amoretti 67 Beloved as hind; lover as hunter Transforms the Petrarchan sequence of longing and losing

12 structure Increases the number of different rhymes to five: abab bcbc cdcd ee Three couplet-like rhymes: bb, cc, ee Because of the more complicated rhyme scheme, the placement of the turn varies

13 Lyke as a huntsman after weary chace, Seeing the game from him escapt away, Sits downe to rest him in some shady place, With panting hounds beguilèd of their pray; So after long pursuit and vaine assay, 5 When I all weary had the chace forsooke, The gentle deare returnd the selfe-same way, Thinking to quench her thirst at the next brook. There she beholding me with mylder looke, Sought not to fly, but fearelesse still did bide: 10 Till I in hand her yet halfe trembling tooke, And with her owne goodwill hir fyrmly tyde. Strange thing me seemed to see a beast so wyld, So goodly wonne with her owne will beguyld.

16 Sir Philip Sidney ( ) Knight, soldier, coterie poet, patron

17 astrophil and stella Astrophil and Stellasequence of 108 sonnets and 11 songs Penelope Devereux thought to be Stella Exploration of the lover's soul using well- established conventions but transforming them

18 astrophil and stella 52 Conceit of Love and Virtue arguing about Stella's allegiance Virtue concedes that she wears Love's device, but Virtue owns her self Martial imagery; legal language

19 A strife is grown between Virtue and Love, While each pretends that Stella must be his: Her eyes, her lips, her all, saith Love, do this, Since they do wear his badge, most firmly prove. But Virtue thus that title doth disprove: 5 That Stella (O dear name) that Stella is That virtuous soul, sure heir of heavenly bliss; Not this fair outside, which our hearts doth move. And therefore, though her beauty and her grace Be Love's indeed, in Stella's self he may 10 By no pretense claim any manner place. Well, Love, since this demur our suit doth stay, Let Virtue have that Stella's self; yet thus, That Virtue but that body grant to us.
