Commentary

7 Leave a comment on paragraph 7 1 Attributed to Sir Thomas Wyatt (Rebholz 1978, 229), this poem was entered by H6. The speaker resolves to turn away from the lady, whose cruel heart has rejected him and rejoiced at his pain. In his study of Wyatt’s lyrics, Winifred Maynard notes that this poem’s ability to be sung to the tune of “fforget not yet the tryde entent” (54v) testifies to Wyatt’s competence at writing quatrains (1965, 4).
