This lecture presents the text of the speech about the work of English poet Sir Thomas Wyatt the Elder as a translator and imitator of Petrarch delivered by the author at the 2007 Chatteron Lecture on Poetry held at the British Academy. It explores why Wyatt's critics have recurrently excavated his poetic remains to search for answers about the man who wrote them, and argues that Wyatt's works actually resist and evade confessional nature, especially when compared to the Petrarchan tradition on which he was drawing.
