AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Sultry Life of Sonnets is the second book in the Trilogy relating to love and dance. 29 sonnets are from the author’s novel, Isadoralola, and there are 28 new sonnets. The relationship between performances of love and dance may be of a symbiotic nature, or other times oppositional. In the 17th century, Lady Mary Wroth wrote sonnets from a female perspective. Instead of being a passive Muse or Beloved of a male-voiced sonnet, she found her own voice. Sonnet 6 is a tribute to her. The sonnets are written to be read in iambic pentameter, soft beat loud beat, 10 to a line, creating a musical quality. Actors and speech and drama students may enjoy reading as monologues or anyone else so inclined. ' (Publication summary)
