THE UTU SONNETS A sequence of seven highly constrained sonnets, taking inspiration from Sumerian, Egyptian, Greek, and Roman mythologies. All sonnets are in iambic pentameter; the first is Petrarchan and each of its lines begins with the letter ‘o’; the remaining six, all Shakespearean, consist of: a sonnet of four-letter words; a sonnet of six-letter words, and four types of palindromic sonnet (by-word, by-word-pairs, by-letter, and by-letter-pairs). All seven sonnets are perfect anagrams of each other. Published by Penteract Press (March 2021)
