Text and meaning of Wyatt's 'Like as the byrde in the cage enclosed'
(University of Colorado, 1986-12)
"Like as the byrde" has been so consistently misrepresented in texts which editors have offered that it seemed mandatory, now, to print the text from the most authoritative source without adulteration, and to comment on ...
Some major errors of transcription in recent editions of Wyatt's poetry
(The University Press of Kentucky, 1988-04)
It is almost an understatement to say that the question as to how Wyatt should be edited is controversial. The most conservative editors are inclined to produce old-spelling transcripts of what they see as the most ...
Rhetoric and revision in Wyatt's poems
(Australasian Universities Language and Literature Association, 1969-05)
In this paper the author considers, from a critical point of view, revisions made by Wyatt himself in his own poems.
Shakespeare's attitude to gender in Macbeth
(Australasian Universities Language and Literature Association, 1988-11)
With the new interest in 'women's studies' there has been a whole flurry of works devoted to the question whether Shakespeare in any significant way discriminated against - or in favour of - women.

(Didier Erudition, 1985)

Review of "Hamlet and Japan" by Yoshiko Ueno, and "Otherwordly Hamlet" by John O'Meara
(Oxford University Press, 1997)

Wyatt's 'There was never nothing more me payned': a reply to John Douglas Boyd
(Oxford University Press, 1971-10)
As far as Wyatt's poem is concerned, I think Boyd's critical problems are largely of his own making. This does not necessarily invalidate his claim that a critic, in interpreting a literary work, may seize on one interpretation ...
Madness in Parts 1 and 2 of 'The honest whore': a case for close reading
(Australasian Universities Language and Literature Association, 1996-11)
The first section of this essay will advance reasons why it is impossible to understand madness in Dekker's 1 and 2 The Honest Whore (c. 1604) without a close textual reading of the kind which some critics call 'old-fashioned' ...
The Significance of the 'Tho' signs in Wyatt's Egerton Manuscript
(Bibliographical Society of the University of Virginia, 1987)
