Yorkshire Sonnets by Shari Lawrence Pfleeger and Jannett Klinke


This collection of sonnets, a prizewinner at the first Ripon Poetry Festival, is the poet's thank-you to a place and people rich with friendship and possibility. All book royalties support the Ripon Poetry Festival.

"Yorkshire Sonnets is a triumph, an ambitious and generous work combining careful craft and patient technique to pull together 'the past's essential threads' in praise of the landscape and history of Yorkshire, people and places, old friends and new" -Andy Croft, writer, poet and founder of Smokestack Books, Yorkshire

"This is a splendid book. A heroic crown of sonnets about Yorkshire's history, people and landscape is enhanced by companion photographs in dialogue with the poems. Shari Lawrence Pfleeger's poetry and Jannett Klinke's photography make luminous the essence of Yorkshire as a contemporary landscape steeped in culture and peopled by those one would want to know. Here we have the very soul of art: not to explain but to bring the reader into a new understanding. Enjoy this book and you will be changed." -Gigi Bradford, former Literature Director, National Endowment of the Arts, USA
