Unholy Sonnet Mark Jarman In this sonnet a man is sits through a catholic mass praying singing hymns listening to the sermon and took communion He is nervous and uneasy after the hand-wringing 687 He lets his mind wander for a time while noticing the shafts of light through the window revealing particles of dust dancing over in the sanctuary this still does not take the pain away So he confesses but he still feels the pain of what he has done He still cant cleanse the spilt blood from his conscience An English rhyming scheme is ababcdcdcdefefgg the Italian Schemes first eight lines are abbaa and the last six lines are cdecde cdcdcd or cdccdc This particular sonnet utilizes part of the Italian rhyming scheme because it is abbaa cdecde The use of the words after and there is a demarcation of time It divides the sonnet into two parts one of action and one of thought The first part is everything he does to try to feel better and the second part states that it was all in vain because he cant atone for his sin of murder A Communal is a confession of sins He took a stab at trying to relieve his guilty conscience by confessing his sin of murder but he didnt understand that confessing would not atone for what he had done His conscience still plagued him Since this was the result the statement communal stab was totaly accurate He took a stab - chance that if he confessed he would find relief from his tormented soul
