BIBLIOGRAPHY IV

EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY SONNETS1

This is not a list of sonnets influenced by Milton (for such a list, see pages 696-7), but of all sonnets published between 1700 and 1800, as well as of all those by persons who began to write quatorzains before the end of the century.2 Magazine sonnets are an exception, since they are included only when some of their authors' pieces appeared in books. Unless otherwise indicated, each poem listed contains fourteen pentameter lines not riming in couplets.

=

=

=

Of the abbreviations, trans. = translation; P. = Petrarchan (only poems that rime abba abbacdecde or-cdc dc d are included under this head); S. Shakespearean (ababcdcdefefgg); Sp. Spenserian (ababbcbccdcdè e); Ir. Irregular, a designation used to cover any variation, however slight, from the other types but not intended as a reflection upon the poems, since Petrarch himself did not always use the system indicated by P. When the number or the kind of sonnets is not mentioned, it is because I have not seen the work.

1 This bibliography owes a great deal both in accuracy and in completeness to the months of painstaking labor Miss Rowe has given to it.

In case of the numerous sonnets of Wordsworth and Capel Lofft, however, only the three each wrote before 1800 are listed.

These four may be regarded as significant on account of their early dates: London Mag., 1737, vi. 448 (trans., eighteen lines, in couplets); 1738, vii. 356 ("in imitation of Milton's sonnets"); 1740, ix. 555 (trans.); 1741, x. 47 (trans., sixteen lines, in couplets).
