Commentary

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 Attributed to Sir Thomas Wyatt (Rebholz 1978, 228-229), this poem was entered by H6 and is unique to the manuscript. The speaker associates his frustrated desire to behold the object of his love with the agony of the damned in hell separated from the presence of God. Foxwell argues that the poem is a “madrigal” due to its rhyme scheme (1913).
