Yannis Livadas: Regarding the “fusion sonnet” of 21 lines



The so-called “fusion sonnet” appeared for the first time in a sum of published poems, entitled “The Hanging Verses Of Babylon”/"Οι Κρεμαστοί Στίχοι Της Βαβυλώνας" (Melani Books, Athens 2007), [ISBN 978-960-8309-78-4]. Into this collection of poems of various styles is included a poem called “Αγαπητέ Μπλεζ” which is a transformed sonnet consisted of 21 lines; in fact, this is a variable half of a "jazz" sonnet which is accompanied by a half sonnet as a coda. Both parts of the poem appear as a whole in a dismantled form of a series of 3, 2, 4, 3, 4, and 5 lined stanzas.
This poem, the first fusion-sonnet, was written in 1993, during my study upon Italian sonnets and songs, and was subtitled “Strambotto romagnuolo trasformato”.
The fusion sonnet is included in whole into the edition Akra / Poems 1990-2008 by Ekati Publications 2022.
