Waffle Sonnets

Waffle Sonnets is one of fourteen book-length extensions of the Anti-Sonnets project. It is available from Lulu HERE (UK), or HERE (US), or via FREE PDF.

To paraphrase Robert Rauschenberg, WAFFLE SONNETS is a book of sonnets if I say it is. In incrementally expanding the motif of the ‘Anti-Sonnets’ project, Waffle Sonnets stretches the form’s contextual associations to their limits. It provocatively demands of its reader: is this an etymological interpretation of the verb ‘to waffle’? The Fluxus-style rendering of 342,398 waffle holes as new portals of possibility? Or was it just a silly idea in a freezer aisle?

ANTI-SONNETS comprised the creation of one sonnet per day over a year, irrespective of personal circumstance. Each sonnet’s subject matter, and perhaps also the perceived quality of its artistic execution, would reflect the tribulations of daily life. ANTI-SONNETS aimed to challenge assumptions associated with the sonnet form, and to champion the ascendency of context over content. WAFFLE SONNETS is part of the extended fall-out.
