This illuminating anthology follows the sonnet through its\nvarious moments and makers over five and a half centuries. Edward\nHirsch and Eavan Boland, two of our foremost poets, focus on\nvicissitudes, paying particular attention to how individual poets\n”from Shakespeare to Strand ”have claimed these fourteen lines:\nlengthened them, shortened them, elaborated on them, and, in turn,\nbeen defined by them. Three sections ”\“The Sonnet in the Mirror,\”\n\“The Sonnet Goes to Different Lengths,\” and \“The Sonnet\nextraordinary durability and its reinventions. The collection opens\nwith personal introductions by the editors, and, in the appendix,\nthey provide \"Ten Questions for a Sonnet Workshop\” to jump-start a\nconversation between students and teachers. With more than three\nhundred poems, The Making of a Sonnet guides readers\nthrough a vigorous adventures in craft and practice, right up to\nits extraordinary resurgence in contemporary poetry.
