  • Wyatt's 'There was never nothing more me payned': a reply to John Douglas Boyd 

    Daalder, Joost (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 ...
  • Review of "The Complete Poems" by Richard Barnfield, "Overthrow of gout [...]" edited by Simon McKeown, and "The sixth book of Virgil's Aeneid [...]" edited by Simon Cauchi 

    Daalder, Joost (Oxford University Press, 1993)
    All three editors and their publishers are to be commended for making available (with extensive introductions and notes) works languishing in neglect. However, Barnfield's poetry is entitled to ride of place - not only ...
  • Some major errors of transcription in recent editions of Wyatt's poetry 

    Daalder, Joost (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 ...
  • Text and meaning of Wyatt's 'Like as the byrde in the cage enclosed' 

    Daalder, Joost (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 ...
  • Seneca and Wyatt's second satire 

    Daalder, Joost (Didier Erudition, 1985)
    In his poetry, Wyatt openly acknowledges Seneca's impact upon him. Seneca, he realized, could teach him how to apply his intelligence to achieving perfect happiness. Interestingly, happiness was incompatible with the ...
  • Rhetoric and revision in Wyatt's poems 

    Daalder, Joost (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.
  • Sir Thomas Wyatt: Collected poems 

    Daalder, Joost (Editor) (Oxford University Press, 1975)
    An edition offering correct and annotated transcripts of the primary sources containing Wyatt's and other early Tudor verse is badly needed; meanwhile it is hoped that the present volume will provide the general reader ...
  • Herbert's 'Poetic Theory' 

    Daalder, Joost (George Herbert Journal, Sacred Heart University, Connecticut, 1986)
    Although scholarship has accumulated much valuable material, I believe that the main advance in our approach to Herbert in recent decades has been in the area of criticism. And this is where most progress was needed, in ...
  • The Significance of the 'Tho' signs in Wyatt's Egerton Manuscript 

    Daalder, Joost (Bibliographical Society of the University of Virginia, 1987)
    There are some features about the Egerton Manuscript 2711, containing Thomas Wyatt's verse amongst that of other authors, which scholars have found rather puzzling. In particular, there has been considerable controversy ...
  • Wyatt's Prosody Revisited 

    Daalder, Joost (Queens College of the City University of New York, 1977)
    In this paper the author offers an entirely new view of Wyatt's prosody. The approach adopted and the conclusion derived from it should also prove pertinent to the study of prosody generally.
  • Wyatt’s ‘Patience’ Poems 

    Daalder, Joost (Neuphilologische Mitteilungen, 1990)
    Four poems starting with the word 'patience' are usually thought of as Wyatt's: 'Patience, though I have not', 'Patience for my device', Patience, for I have wrong', and 'Patience of all my smart'. Of these the first two ...
  • Wyatt’s Proverbial ‘Though the wound be healed, yet a scar remains’ 

    Daalder, Joost (Erich Schmidt Verlag GmbH & Co., 1986)
    Tottel's anthology, Songes and Sonettes (1557), was published well after the death of both Wyatt and Surrey. To the best of our knowledge, Wyatt's poem CCXLIV had not appeared in print before then, as neither had Surrey's ...
  • Wyatt Manuscripts and “The Court of Venus” 

    Daalder, Joost (Bibliographical Society of Australia and New Zealand, 1984)
    This article aims to demonstrate the differences and similarities between manuscripts containing poems by Wyatt and 'The Court of Venus'. The manuscripts examined include the Egerton Manuscript, the Devonshire Manuscript, ...
  • Review of "The Art of Naming" by Ferry 

    Daalder, Joost (Oxford University Press, 1991)
    A favourable review of Anne Ferry's book "The Art of Naming" (Chicago and London: University of Chicago Press, 1988). Daalder states that this book makes a valuable contribution to the study of sixteenth-century literature; ...
  • Review of "English Metrical Psalms: Poetry as Praise and Prayer, 1535-1601" by Zim. 

    Daalder, Joost (Oxford University Press, 1989)

  • Review of "The Complete Poems" by Barnfield and Klawitter 

    Daalder, Joost (Oxford University Press, 1993)
    A favourable review of "The Complete Poems" by Richard Barnfield, edited by George Klawitter (Selinsgrove: Susquehanna University Press; London and Toronto: Associated University Presses, 1990). Daalder also briefly reviews ...
  • Review of "The Miltonic Moment" by Evans 

    Daalder, Joost (Routledge, part of the Taylor & Francis group, 2000)
    A favourable review of Martin Evans' book, "The Miltonic Moment" (Lexington, Kentucky: University Press of Kentucky, 1998). Evans's thesis is that 'Milton's poems invariably depict the decisive instant in a story, a moment ...
  • Seneca and the Text of Marvell's "Climb at court for me that will" 

    Daalder, Joost (Parergon, 1989)
    This poem, as is well known, is a translation of the passage which ends the second chorus (and thus the second act) of Seneca's tragedy "Thyestes". Renaissance editions of the play differ in a number of details, but they ...
  • Review of "Andrew Marvell Pastoral and Lyric Poems 1681" by Ormerod and Wortham 

    Daalder, Joost (Parergon, 2002)
    A mixed review of David Ormerod and Christopher Wortham's new edition of a number of Marvell's poems, "Andrew Marvell: Pastoral and Lyric Poems 1681" (Nedlands, University of Western Australia Press, 2000).
  • The Prosodic Significance of Donne's "Accidentals" 

    Daalder, Joost (Parergon, 1986)
    In the case of Donne, we are confronted with two extraordinary facts which are of the greatest interest to those who wish to consider the question of what his text (as a poet) is held to be and what in fact Donne might ...
