Collection of Sonnets
The word sonnet is derived from the Italian word “sonetto,” which means a “little song” or small lyric. In poetry, a sonnet has 14 lines and is written in iambic pentameter. Each line has 10 syllables. It has a specific rhyme scheme, and a volta, or a specific turn.
         Generally, sonnets are divided into different groups based on the rhyme scheme they follow. The rhymes of a sonnet are arranged according to a certain rhyme scheme. The rhyme scheme in English is usually abab–cdcd–efef–gg, and in Italian abba–abba–cde–cde.

Sonnets can be categorized into six major types:

Italian Sonnet
Shakespearean Sonnet
Spenserian Sonnet
Miltonic Sonnet
Terza Rima Sonnet
Curtal Sonnet
