Book Description

1 May 2008 Poet to Poet (Book 23)
In this series, a contemporary poet selects and introduces a poet of the past. By their choice of poems and by the personal and critical reactions they express in their prefaces, the editors offer insights into their own work as well as providing an accessible and passionate introduction to some of the greatest poets of our literature. Sir Thomas Wyatt was born in Kent in 1503 and educated at St John's College, Cambridge. He served Henry VIII as a diplomat in Europe but was imprisoned and almost executed for his close relationship with Anne Boleyn. On his release, Wyatt became Sheriff of Kent and later Ambassador to Spain, and died 1542 from a fever caught on a diplomatic mission.

A superb introduction to a relatively unknown poet. We are the poorer for not knowing his work.
Congratulations to Alice Oswald.

I heard one of Thomas Wyatt's poems as part of a television programme and immediately bought the book through Amazon. It is smaller than expected but very good nonetheless.
