Commentary

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 Attributed to Sir Thomas Wyatt (Rebholz 1978, 117-118), this poem was entered by H2. The poem also appears in Tottel’s Miscellany under the title “The louer to his bed, with describing of his vnquiet state” (item 62) (2010, 53). Rebholz suggests that Wyatt may have adapted Petrarch’s Rime 234 in the first stanza: “Wyatt expands Petrarch’s antithesis (between haven in emotional storms and the foundation of tears) into catalogue of antitheses that makes the first stanza resemble XVII” (Rebholz 1978, 398). Wyatt may have also derived his refrain from Petrarch’s references to tears and retreating from a bedroom that once brought him solace. In the poem the speaker describes the unquiet state of the lover in his bed.
