The sonnet's varied rhyme-schemes bear the marks of cultural and generical pressures: Jiri Levy's exploration of the early English sonnet, (15) for instance, reveals that while the rhymes of those sonnets contributed by Wyatt to Tottel's Miscellany (1557) show a drift towards the Shakespearean arrangements in their sestets, the syntactic patterns maintain a continental (Petrarchan) 4 + 4 + 3 + 3 structure; Surrey, on the other hand, more fully integrates syntactic structure with the Shakespearean rhyme-scheme (4 + 4 + 4 + 2); for their part, Donne and Milton gravitate back towards the continental rhyme-scheme without surrendering English syntactic habits.
