George Barker's Sonnet of Fishes

Fraser, Robert (2007). George Barker's Sonnet of Fishes. In: Hanke, Michael ed. Fourteen English sonnets: critical essays. Studien Zur Anglistischen Literatur-und-Sprach-Wissenschaft (28). Trier, Germany: Wissenschaftlicher Verlag, pp. 145–157.



An in-depth reading of this elusive sonnet, and a small act of contrition since I omitted it from my 1995 edition of Barker's Selected Poems. Subjected to close scrunity, the poem reveals in code the details of an extraordinary love triangle.
