The Sonnets of Ron Visnor

This handsomely bound volume of 320 sonnets is presented in chronological order from the first, written when the poet was seventeen years old, to the last, completed in 2006.

All sonnets strictly follow the Elizabethan form, with three quatrains followed by two closing lines. Topics reflect this unique talentís personal journey through the second half of the 20th century; there are frequent references to Greek mythology, Tolkienís characters, Shakespeare, and current events.

This book will be of particular interest to lovers of the sonnet form, students of Greek mythology, and teachers of English. The price is $30.
