There is no agreed canon of Wyatt's poems, nor any particular order in which they should or should not be presented. Most readers initially come across his work in anthologies. Here all poems from the manuscipts are included and the order followed is that of A. K. Foxwell, i.e. Rondeaus, Sonnets, Epigrams, Miscellaneous poems, Satires, Poems written after 1536, Poems from the Devonshire manuscript, Poems absent from E & D, Poems from Tottel's Songes and Sonettes. The translations of the Penitential Psalms have not been included. The main corpus derives from the Egerton manuscript (E) (BM 2711). Other poems are found in the Devonshire manuscript (D), in various other manuscript sources, and in Tottel's Miscellany (T).

All sections are now on line, as may be seen from the links listed to the left. A few poems not given in Foxwell have yet to be added. The first line index is also now available.
