The sonnet is often misrepresented as a “pure” form with metrical and lineal limits. “In Webs of Phantasy, Combine and Fuse: Toward a Redefinition of the Sonnet” explores the history of the sonnet and its many manifestations as it attempts a more inclusive definition based on the rhetorical structures inherent in many sonnets. "Variation on a Sacred Grove: A Sonnet Sequence” is a creative verse narrative written in the voice of the Mormon prophet Joseph Smith. The sequence is an attempt to explore the personality of a person who believes himself to be God’s chosen spokesperson.
