A sonnet is a fourteen-line poem in the form of a poem. It began in Italy in the thirteenth century, and though some of the original standards have been preserved, such as the number of lines and the use of a certain rhyme scheme and meter, the norms of sonnets have altered to some extent throughout the ages.
