By Deon Ceaser

Explain the title of this chapter- what

Define/ describe a Petrarchan sonnet.
Example of a Petrarchan sonnet
The Snowing of the Pines
Softer than silence, stiller than still air,
Float down from high pine boughs the slender leaves.
The forest floor its annual boon receives
That comes like snowfall, tireless, tranquil, fair.
Gently they glide, gently they clothe the bare
Old rocks with grace. Their fall a mantle weaves
Of paler yellow than autumnal sheaves Or those strange blossoms the witch-hazels wear. Athwart long aisles the sunbeams pierce their way; High up, the crows are gathering for the night; The delicate needles fill the air; the jay Takes through their golden mist his radiant flight; They fall and fall, till at November's close The snow-flakes drop as lightly--snows on snows.

Define or describe a Shakespearean
sonnet and Example.
The sonnet form used by Shakespeare,

We rehearse our dreams before we dream them and it has the mystifying smell of strange flowers.We are the oceans we are the shores we allow desires, they rise and fall dreams outlive dreams as we solicit the solitude of the moon

Cat and The Hat. Because they have certain images to go along with the book also the book is read different than other books like rhyming not exactly a different language but its a different approach than other stories.
• A Petrarchan sonnet uses a rhyme scheme
that ties the first with lines together followed
by a rhyme scheme.
My example of this is if your saying L M N L M N L M N
A sonnet containing an octave with the rhyme scheme abbaabba
Basically in this chapter is saying that the two main sonnets are the Shakespearean and the Petrarchan sonnets. Also the different point of views of each sonnet. Example: A Petrarchan has 8 lines which makes it an octave. A Shakespearean was Shakespeare organization for four lines known as a quatrain.
