GIRO GIRO TONDO
AN OBSESSION

As a gift for the Week of Dutch and Belgian Poetry 2015, printed in an edition of more than 20 thousand copies, Ilja Leonard Pfeijffer wrote a crown of sonnets on the theme of the cynical cycle of love, which moves from desiring to loving to losing and to suffering the lack, after which the cycle can start all over again. Giro giro tondo is the only crown of sonnets made totally according to all the classical rules of the genre in Dutch literature. The last verse of each sonnet constitutes the first of the next poem and taking the first verse of each sonnet one obtains another further sonnet.
