The Amsterdam Sonnet Cycle

Sonnets to Amsterdam: Journey Through the Amsterdam Outcasts of the Lillard Universe

A heroic crown of sonnets symbolises an extraordinary accomplishment. It signifies a degree of poetic mastery and achievement that surpasses that of a single crown of sonnets. Each crown within a heroic crown of crowns represents a signigicant milestone in the poet’s journey. It signifies the poet’s ability to excel in his chosen endeavour and one of the highest levels of arrangement within which to exercise his poetic influence.

A heroic crown of crowns consists in 14 crowns of sonnets of which the Mastersonnets form a new crown. All the sonnets are linked together. Each of the crowns consists of 14 individual sonnets which are woven together. The Mastersonnet (Magistral) is made of the first lines of the 14 sonnets before it.
Those 14 Mastersonnets (Magistrals) generate a 15th Mastersonnet (Magistral’s Magistral) by their first or last lines, that 15th Mastersonnet is also called the Grandmastersonnet (Grand Magisterial Sonnet). A crown of crowns consists thus of 196 linked sonnets which generate 14 Mastersonnets which generate 1 Grandmastersonnet; this leads to a total of 211 sonnets.
This present volume follows the aforementioned format, in possessing 14 crowns, and they form a strict interwoven 15th crown, because the 14 Mastersonnets (Magisterials) are linked together. Still that 15th crown generates a Grandmastersonnet, so the total of sonnets is 211. The first book in this first volume, consists in the first 70 sonnets in a heroic crown of crowns.
The ultimate format for publication will be a Trinity of Heroic Crown of Crowns. That is three sets of 211 wreathed sonnets to Amsterdam.
