Wyatt's Use of Repetitions and Refrains

Abstract

Starting from the premise that systematic variation of phrasal detail must be deliberate, a number of Wyatt's short poems are examined to show how he achieves effects by small verbal modifications, particularly in conspicuous positions such as refrains, and to claim on the basis of the effects demonstrated that his poetry merits more minutely attentive reading than it sometimes receives.
