    Description
    He had himself survived two imprisonments in the Tower as well as a love affair with Anne Boleyn, and this poetry- that of an extraordinarily sophisticated, passionate and vulnerable man - sometimes reflects such experiences, making disguised reference to current political intrigues and events. Above all, though, Wyatt is known and read his poetry, which often dramatizes incidents or remembered conversations with is beloved, with an ear acutely sensitive to patterns of rhythm and colloquial speech. Although he can sometimes lapse into conventional exclamations of courtly love, his bet poems convey the actuality of betrayal or absence, and the intense pressure of his longing for a love that could be trusted.
