In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: The Sonnets of Satin-Legs Brooks Karen Jackson Ford bio The legend of Gwendolyn Brooks's stylistic shift from traditional Anglo-European prosody to free verse and the ideals of the black aesthetic is well known by her readers and abundantly chronicled by her critics.
Her two powerful and important sonnet sequences, "Gay Chaps at the Bar" and "the children of the poor"have received careful readings from scholars, both as poems in their own right and as crucial steps in the development of her aesthetics.
Critics compulsively mention her sonnets, whether or not those poems are relevant to their discussions, and sometimes even detect the form where there is no sonnet at all.
