Edmund Spenser was one of England’s more influential poets, his most famous work the Faerie Queen is still one of the longest works of poetry in the English language. Spenser also pioneered his own form of sonnet: the Spenserarian sonnet. He also sought to write sonnets that dealt with honourable love, and therefore, his sonnet sequence deals with the courtship between Spenser and his second wife.

Lady Mary Wroth was the first woman to publish a work of prose and a sonnet sequence in the English language. Her sonnets deal with the heartache of infidelity, breaking the convention of sonnet writing, which traditionally in the Petrarchan style dealt with forbidden love. She writes in the form of an English sonnet.
