File:Solt Mary Ellen 1964 Moonshot Sonnet.png
Mary Ellen Solt, Moonshot Sonnet, 1964. The poem is "composed from reformatted diagrammatic-codes initially used by NASA-engineers to plan and execute the moon landing. The engineers placed the diagrammatic-codes over photographs of the lunar surface, and Solt abstracted the diagrams without any photographic reference. Using the codes, she transformed the result into a sonnet, with the codes appearing in “exactly fourteen “lines” with five “accents,”” a Petrarchan or Italianate sonnet" . Appeared in Solt's influential anthology Concrete Poetry: A World View (1968), 242.
