Forget the cinquain, the sestina, and the villanella. With the possible exception of its coarse cousin the limerick and the syllabically limited haiku (the tweet of prosody), the sonnet rules, and it has since before William Shakespeare began laying bare his soul in beats associated with burlesque (da-DUM, da-DUM) in 14 rhyming lines of five counts — or feet — each.

On Thursday, May 8, in the Santa Fe Shakespeare Society’s second annual Sonnet-a-Thon, volunteers will read Shakespeare’s sonnets — all 154 of them — beginning at 5:30 p.m. on the stage of the Jean Cocteau Cinema, 418 Montezuma Ave.
