Commentary

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 Written in Mary Shelton’s hand, this poem remains unattributed and contributes to a larger group of poems in the manuscript that discuss the need to conceal one’s true feelings (see the Commentaryon “In places Wher that I company” (62v)). This poem sequence could present another instance of Margaret Douglas and Mary Shelton playing at one another’s texts (see the Commentaryon “when I bethynk my wontet ways” (58r)).
