Commentary

6 Leave a comment on paragraph 6 0 Attributed to Sir Thomas Wyatt (Rebholz 1978, 230), this poem was entered by H8. The speaker, here, asserts his independence of the lady and feels neither joy nor sorrow from her behaviour.

7 Leave a comment on paragraph 7 0 The Folger manuscript contains a longer version of the poem. Rebholz suggests that the two surviving shorter versions of the poem (which appear in the Devonshire Manuscript and the Trinity College, Dublin MS D.2.7 manuscript) are closer to the original poem since the second and fourth lines in the longer poem have not been dropped in revision. Rebholz also points out that all three extant versions of the poem are independent witnesses to the original (ibid., 500).
