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.

poems, is now available. Click here to access it.
