Commentary

7 Leave a comment on paragraph 7 0 Written in Margaret Douglas’ hand, this poem remains unattributed. H12 enters the first three lines of the poem and part of the fourth line directly below the last stanza of this poem on “fancy framed my hart ffrust” (62r). Both examples show indications of revision by an unidentified hand. “ffanecy fframed my hart ffurst” explores the common courtly trope of fancy. In this case, fancy is both foe and friend to the lover.
