Commentary

10 Leave a comment on paragraph 10 1 Attributed to Sir Thomas Wyatt (Rebholz 1978, 296-297), this poem was entered by H8. Rebholz notes that in the Trinity College Dublin MS D.2.7 the scribe attributes the poem to Thomas Vaux (ibid., 531). The speaker’s efforts to woo the lady have won him only disdain; he warns other lovers to pay heed to his misfortune.
