Thomas Wyatt is the finest English poet between Chaucer and the Elizabethans. Many poems have been wrongly attributed to him, however, and the authenticity of different versions of his lyrics has been a matter of dispute. Richard Harrier makes a significant contribution both by establishing accurate texts and by determining the canon itself. The only solid foundation for the Wyatt canon is his personal copybook, the Egerton MS, here reproduced in a diplomatic text. The apparatus records all changes within the manuscript and all contemporary variants; explanatory notes are provided. This volume, which includes a detailed and comprehensive analysis of the sources, will stand as the ultimate authority for the text and canon of Wyatt's poems.

As a diplomat in Renaissance Europe, and a luminary at the court of Henry VII, Sir Thomas Wyatt wrote in an incestuous world where everyone was uneasily subject to the royal whims and rages. Wyatt had himself survived two imprisonments in the Tower as well as a love affair with Anne Boleyn, and his poetry - that of an extraordinarily sophisticated, passionate and vulnerable man - reflects these experiences, making disguised reference to current political events. Above all, though, Wyatt is known for his love poetry, which often dramatizes incidents and remembered conversations with his beloved, with an ear acutely sensitive to patterns of rhythm and colloquial speech. Conveying the actuality of betrayal or absence, and the intense pressure of his longing for a love that could be trusted, these are some of the most haunting poems in the English language.

No. 4 DAPHNAiDA AND OTHER POEMS, being vol. 2 in the complete Spenser. THE POETRY OF SIR THOMAS WYATT A SELECTION AND A STUDY BY E. M. W. TILLYARD UNIVERSITY LECTURER IN ENGLISH AND LATE FELLOW OF JESUS COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE 1929 THE SCHOLARTIS PRESS 30 MUSEUM STREET, LONDON PREFACE THE aim of this book is to call attention to an author who, though sometimes appreciated justly, has never really received his due. Wyatt to the general literary public is still the importer of the Sonnet into England, and the author of some half a dozen lyrics that deserve a place in the anthologies. In reality he is something more a man of remarkable character, part of which has been made accessible to us through the medium of a number of short poems. Less precisely he can be called an important lyric poet. To further my aim two things seemed necessary a new anthology and a new appreciation. Selections from Wyatt exist within anthologies of Tudor lyrics, but they are not full enough to give an adequate idea of him. On the other hand, the com plete works canbe unduly forbidding. Most of the poems are apprentice work, and the general reader who attempts the bulk may easily tire of the business of picking out poetry from experiment, and conclude that on the whole Wyatt is rather tedious. A more generous anthology than exists at present seems the required mean between the two extremes. A fresh appreciation seems no less necessary. One recent writer maintains that the important thing is that in Wyatts work the early Tudor found examples of a large variety of verse forms, coldly but carefully worked out, and another does not trouble to exclude Wyatts lyrics from what he calls stilted Italianate compositions, which judged by themselves were worthless. These are not the prevailing opinions, but they show that it is time someone spoke up in Wyatts praise. My choice of poems has been ruled by intrinsic merit rather than by historical importance. Few of PREFACE the sonnets are included and it may be remarked that for the sake of his reputation, Wyatt had better not have imported the sonnet into England, for by so doing he purchased a text-book glory at the price of advertising the class of poems that does his poetical powers least credit. The substance of my appreciation is contained in the section of the Introduction dealing with Wyatts lyrics and in the notes to the poems but as a preliminary I have written briefly about his historical position in English literature, and for the sake of completeness I have commented on the other classes of the poems and have added a short biography and a note on the text, the editors and the critics. The text is taken from the manuscripts direct, or from Flugels transcripts in Anglia vols. 18 and 19, or fromArbers reprint of Tottells Miscellany. The forms of words have been kept, but the spelling has been modernised and punctuation inserted. Had the manuscripts been punctuated, I should have hesitated to modernise the spelling. But one must modernise by inserting punctuation if one wishes to present a readable text and having modernised so far, I can see little point in reading and ytt for zndjfor, you and yow and so on with no discrimination, as one must if one follows the manuscripts...

Sir Thomas Wyatt is remembered today as one of the most important poets in the English language, and as the man who brought the sonnet into English, with imitations and re-creations of Petrarch. His work is broader than that, however, and he showed himself to be a fine elegist and satirist as well as a lyric poet of the very first order.

This new edition of the poems of Sir Thomas Wyatt presents an accurate and intelligible text, with the annotation which today's general reader needs. The text is entirely re-edited and modernized, and, for the first time in a modern edition, the punctuation consistenly and successfully brings out the sense of the poems. The editor also offers several new readings. The present text will therefore considerably enhance the reputation of Wyatt, who already is widely regarded as the most important poet of his age. --Oxford University Press Donated by Barbara Einzig.

"Much in opposition to New Historicist framing of Sir Thomas Wyatt as a puppet of Henrician power games and a prisoner of his own fate, Krisztina Szalay's book demonstrates what creative energies had sprung from this poet's unceasing fight for personal freedom. This in itself would make him a far more interesting figure than is commonly thought had he not been a truly idiosyncratic master of diction and poetical form. By analyzing some representative poems of his the essay portrays Wyatt as a poet for all seasons."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
