|Welcome to Sonnet Central, an archive of English sonnets, commentary, and relevant web links and a forum for poets to share and discuss their own work. Sonnets are grouped by period below and can also be accessed quickly via an alphabetical list of authors or the java navigation page. All of the sonnets included here (as well as most of those that are linked) are modernized texts for the general reader and are not presented for purposes of scholarly work. Comments and corrections are welcome and may be e-mailed to me, Eric Blomquist.
