Commentary

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 Attributed to Sir Thomas Wyatt (Rebholz 1978, 72), this poem was entered by H7. The speaker in the poem asks that his sighs break his lover’s icy heart. Although Wyatt’s poem is partially a translation of Petrarch’s Rime 153, Rebholz notes that Wyatt only translates the first quatrain almost verbatim and departs from Petrarch’s sonnet structure by transforming the poem’s form into a rondeau. Alternatively, Wyatt may have imitated an unknown French rondeau that was based on Petrarch’s Rime 153 (ibid., 338). The poem also appears in Tottel’s Miscellany under the title “The louer sendeth sighes to mone his sute” (2010, 82-83). Unlike the rondeau found in the Devonshire Manuscript, the version in Tottel’s Miscellany changes the poem to a sonnet structure by expanding the refrain and omitting the last refrain (Rebholz 1978, 338).
