Chris Stamatakis reappraises Sir Thomas Wyatt (c.1504-1542) as a poetic innovator from the literary avant-garde of early Tudor England. He discusses Wyatt's reflections on the writing process, and his awareness of how words can be turned in new directions - that is, rewritten, amended, transformed, manipulated, even performed - over the course of a text's production, transmission, and reception. Where previous studies have read Wyatt's poetry from a largely biographical standpoint, this book examines the reading practices of his Tudor audiences and editors, and it considers the different types of textuality shown by the manuscript collections that contain his verse. By setting Wyatt's writings in the context of sixteenth-century theories of language and literary practice, and by drawing on early Tudor educational, rhetorical, and courtierly handbooks, Stamatakis examines the rhetoric of rewriting that colours Wyatt's texts. Repeatedly, his writings invite readers to 'turn' or perform the word-to draw out something that lies inert within it. These habits of rewriting and verbal performance often serve to sustain an intimate dialogue between writers and readers in this literary culture. The book pays particular attention to the fascinating materiality of Wyatt's texts: the margins around, and the interlinear spaces within, his poems are regularly filled with new text-handwritten scrawls that are supplied by Wyatt himself or by his copyists, editors and readers. Chapters are devoted to the types of rewriting found in each of Wyatt's main genres: Plutarchian essays; forensic apologias; psalm paraphrases; letters and verse epistles, and lyrics or 'balets'. Two appendices offer further detail about patterns of manuscript transmission and the copying of Wyatt's poems. Sir Thomas Wyatt and the Rhetoric of Rewriting argues that reading often shaded into writing (and rewriting) in the early sixteenth century, and it shows how acts of apparent copying often transformed texts inventively and imaginatively.

About the Author:


Chris Stamatakis studied as an undergraduate and postgraduate at the University of Oxford, writing his doctorate on Sir Thomas Wyatt and early Tudor literary practice. In 2009, he was awarded a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship and a Junior Research Fellowship at Lincoln College, Oxford, where he contributes to teaching in the Renaissance period and where he is currently working on a research project examining the influence of Italian literature on the emergence of an English vernacular poetics in the sixteenth century.

Review:

a necessary, engaging, scholarly study which deserves to be read, and with care. Wyatts manuscripts and textual afterlives are no less fascinating than the content of his poetry and prose, and Stamatakis does an admirable job reminding us of that. * Will Rossiter, Journal of the Northern Renaissance * this volumes provides a helpful introduction to the art, science, and literature of the Netherlands in the seventeenth century. Its interdisciplinary approach will enrich readers' understanding of Dutch culture, especially since in this day of specialization it is too easy to forget that human life is tapestry of many threads. * Sixteenth Century Journal *
