Example text

An endless wind doth tear the sail apace, Of forced sighs and trusty fearfulness; A rain of tears, a cloud of dark disdain Hath done the wearied cords great hinderance, Wreathed in error, and eke with ignorance. The stars be hid that led me to this pain, Drowned is reason that should me comfort, And I remain despairing of the port. (Wyatt 1975, 25–6) The sonnet is, on the surface, quite similar to Petrarch’s. Certainly, the image of the ship making a dangerous journey while the poetic voice despairs of a safe conclusion seems identical.

We know therefore that the sonnet could well have been translated at the time of Wyatt’s imprisonment in the Tower of London in May 1536 in connection with the fall of Queen Anne Boleyn from the King’s favour. Wyatt was cited as one of the Queen’s lovers, but was soon released and sent to Spain as ambassador. Accurate details of Wyatt’s romantic involvement with Anne Boleyn will never be fully uncovered, but it is probable that he did develop an attachment during 1525/6 and found the King to be his rival for her affections.

In order to understand the way in which Petrarch developed this conceit, the sonnet will be examined in more detail. The poem is usually identified today as CLXXXIX in Rime Sparse, although in earlier editions and critical works the overall title may be noted as Canzoniere. Although the majority of Petrarch’s poetic output was in Latin, the most influential works were written in Italian and gathered together in the Rime Sparse or in the Trionfi (Triumphs). The former includes 317 sonnets, as well as a range of other verse, which focus mainly upon Petrarch’s ill-fated love for Laura.
