Commentary

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 Attributed to Sir Thomas Wyatt by internal evidence and by Rebholz (1978, 84), this poem was entered by H4. The poem also appears in Tottel’s Miscellany under the title “The waueryng louer wylleth, and dreadeth, to moue his desire” (item 41) (2010, 42). Rebholz notes that this sonnet translates and adapts Petrarch’s Rime 169. For instance, on line 8 Wyatt adds a personification of liberty imprisoned within the “walls” of love since “the speaker’s hope denies him the liberty of breaking off the relationship; [but] his dread denies him the liberty of pursuing the lady more boldly” (1978, 353). H4’s use of c forms in this case reveals his or her understanding of sonnet structure. H4 uses similar majuscule forms in “It was my choyse yt was no chance /” (30v).
