Sonnet 55 is one of my favorite drawings in the Sonnet Series. It is based on the English form of the sonnet and it expresses the elements of the form with visual drama. The three quatrains progressively build into a climactic end that is the couplet. Moreover, the volta between the second and the third quatrains, an element that is a remnant of the Italian form, is subtly incorporated. It is expressed by the shift in direction that happens in the drawing.
