Pistol Sonnets PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Pistol Sonnets free pdf A stunning new pocket edition of William's sonnet sequence Pistol Sonnets, now revised and updated. This collection of 99 sonnets is an act of homage to the surrealist practice of automatism. Formally, the book is an exploration of the fourteen line restriction and is divided into three sections. The poems are composed to mimic the brevity and finality of pistol shots. The targets are love, sex, mystery, mistaken identities, chance encounters, language, sex and again, the possibilites of love.
