    14 lines? Yes. A love poem? Traditionally, but not always focused on love? Take for example, a poem full of words of hate that fits the 14 line structure. Is it a sonnet?

    Any ideas or information on sonnet's would be much appreciated, as well as any useful books, even sources referring to the history of the sonnet.

    Thanks to anyone that can help

    depends what type: Shakespearean, Petrarchan etc? For English (Shakey) I think basically: iambic pentameter, 14 lines. any subject, though traditionally love. needs to have 10 syllables a line - though nowadays its more flexible. like cbrown27 said - wiki, google!

    The syllable structure, on top of the other things listed. But actually they aren't necessarily love poems, that's mostly a shakespeare thing.
