Commentary

11 Leave a comment on paragraph 11 0 Attributed to Sir Thomas Wyatt (Rebholz 1978, 234), this poem was entered by H8. The speaker compares the lady’s power to a magnetic stone and a phoenix—images which rarely appear in this manuscript. Rebholz notes that Wyatt loosely imitated the first two stanzas of Petrarch’s Rime 135 for this poem (ibid., 502). H8 entered the first line in larger characters than the rest of the lyric. He or she also frequently overlines a word in this section, but his or her overlining leaves the significance of the words indeterminate. H8 also entered “I finde no peace and all my warre is donne” (82r-82v) with extensive overlining.
