Triple Crown is the only triple heroic crown of sonnets in the English language. The interwoven poems deal with 3 aspects of reality: universal, societal, and personal. The first cycle retells the story of Creation. The second describes the conflicts of the kings of ancient Israel. In the final cycle, Job describes his suffering, and rails against a world which appears to be devoid of justice.
