Commentary

11 Leave a comment on paragraph 11 0 This poem remains unattributed and may be an original creation unique to this manuscript. Entered by H2, this poem is the second of a question/answer pair placed on facing pages, marked first (primus) and second (secundus) by an unidentified hand, and with possibly corresponding attributions. The speaker cautions the narrator of the preceding poem to put his trust in what he can see and not what he imagines.
