Upon my first true reread of the series (I have not reread the entire series all in one go), I endeavor to write A Series of Unfortunate Sonnets: one sonnet written for each book. The sonnets will probably be rubbish (you could even say unfortunate), but nonetheless, it will be an experiment of my creativity. With thirteen chapters + a letter to the editor (explaining how to get the manuscript for each book), within thirteen books + follow up, a fourteen lined sonnet seems like the fitting form to adopt.
The Penultimate Peril
The meeting of another Snicket, Kit
Adds mystery to the Snicket story.
Who are these siblings, and are they legit?
They all have low hopes: Memento Mori.
She gives them a mission: to be flaneurs,
To watch each guest of the hotel closely,
They will be ignored as a concierge.
They find more questions than answers mostly.
A hotel that is a giant library,
An evil plot, an unfortunate death,
A trial, an end that is fiery.
A tragedy that’s as sad as Macbeth.
And so they go, to an unknown shore,
For the last safe place – it is safe no more.
