'They flee from me that sometime did me seek,' wrote Thomas Wyatt, yet the poet who introduced the sonnet and the epigram into English literature was also a survivor who abandoned Catherine of Aragon for Anne Boleyn, and dissociated himself from Thomas Cromwell when his star sank. This remarkable biography sets Wyatt's enigmatic verses against the lethal power politics of the court of Henry VIII to create a rich and nuanced portrait of a complex, elusive and fascinating figure.
