Thoughts and writing samples from the writer J. Simon Harris.

My sonnet, "Unrequited Love", was just published by the Society of Classical Poets. The sonnet begins like a traditional Italian love sonnet, but ends with an ironic twist. The scenario was inspired by a scene in Dante's Vita Nuova, in which Dante is staring at Beatrice but is thought to be staring at a woman in between them, whom he begins to call the "screen lady".
