Our local Public Radio Station WRNI kicked off National Poetry Month with a whole hour devoted to a discussion of Sonnets. You can listen to the program by going to Once there, choose “On Point” on the programs link, and then choose “The making of Sonnets”. Listen to experts describing what sonnets are in their various permutations, listen to famous poets reading their works, and enjoy informed discussion in between.
