Sonnets are usually more identified with Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Shakespeare, but many other authors wrote sonnets. Robert Frost wrote quite a few, and The Master Speed is probably his best known as it relates to love and marriage.

Here are the full text of the poem, side-by-side with analysis questions and an Essential Question. Answer key included.

Two posters for sonnet formats are also included.
