The relationship between performances of love and dance may be of a symbiotic nature, or other times oppositional.

In the 17th century, Lady Mary Wroth wrote sonnets from a female perspective. Instead of being a passive Muse or Beloved of a male-voiced sonnet, she found her own voice. Sonnet 6 is a tribute to her. The sonnets are written to be read in iambic pentameter, soft beat loud beat, 10 to a line, creating a musical quality. Actors and speech and drama students may enjoy reading as monologues or anyone else so inclined.At Deakin University in 2013 Jeanette Sobey received a High Distinction Award for her major assignment, a suite of sonnets, in the unit Contemporary Poetry.

This unit was part of her Masters in Writing and Literature. The lecturer Dr A Vickery wrote ‘I think you have mastered the regular sonnet form. You certainly demonstrate an ease with metre and rhyme, and your writing conveys a light and playful wit. I also liked the way that you explored different representations of love, exploring different subject-positions and dynamics between the poet-speaker and the beloved’.
