With this sequence of 50 untitled, rhymed sonnets, Karen Volkman takes her interrogation of the poem as formal machine a step further, using English poetry's most famous form as her guide. The sonnets are concerned with love and some notion of a high, or other, power, or at least with the capacity of language to bridge the gap between addressor and addressee. The poems are often fierce, ravished, perflexed and perplexing, notes Publishers Weekly in a March 2008 review.
