INSTRUCTIONS: Perhaps other assignments will involve the squirmy (sub?)genre of the graphic novel, but here you're asked to aid the birth of a new one: the Graphic Sonnet (or Sonet Dessinée). The goal of the graphic sonneteer is to take the form of the sonnet, which has become an embarrassment, and raise it to a more ambitious and meaningful level. In doing this, you will have to consider which characteristics of the sonnet can be incorporated into graphics; for example, some formic suggestion of the number 14 seems like a very reasonable requirement. How and whether you choose to represent a rhyme scheme, or the volta, or English-vs-Italian form, etc is up to you.
We will ask you, however, to prove that you have submitted your work to a literary journal, 'zine, magazine, website, or book series (et. al) that publishes sonnets.
And here it is in a more standard format. But the format above is really the one I want represented. This here, is just so you can see the phrasing of my poem. This is only here so you can see the feet.
And here is the comment I posted on http://poetryfoundation.org/ I can't wait to see if they love or hate it.
