Sir Thomas Wyatt was a cornerstone of the development of British Literature, and his works influenced the art of literature and made it what it is today. He introduced the sonnet into English civilization, and thus set up the building blocks for many great writers to write in the English language. He also accomplished many great things in his time. He was part of King Henry VIII's court going on secret foreign missions. His works are now looked upon as great pieces of literature
[...] The following is just a sample of what is being said about Sir Thomas's work: HOUSE AND GARDEN By: Rolex I stumbled through the room where crumbs are kept, Along with broken records stacked on chairs- The stockings blush where once the wax had wept, Left innocent upon the wooden stairs. I remember when the time was new, The sunlit glades, long days and laughing eyes, Lost days and faded names are just as true As feathered songs and sunshined butterflies. [...]
[...] AS never file yet half so well filed, To file a file for any smith's intent, As I was made a filing instrument, To frame other, while that I was beguiled : But reason, lo, hath at my folly smiled, And pardoned me, sins that I me repent Of my lost years, and of my time misspent.

Wyatt and Surrey often share the title "father of the English sonnet."( Jokinen) These are some of the works of Sir Thomas over his years: THE ABUSED LOVER SEETH HIS FOLLY, AND INTENDETH TO TRUSTNO MORE.

[...] Sir Thomas Wyatt has done too much to name in his time on this earth. He has made his mark in history by being ambassador to agent of the courts, and to being a criminal. He has had lovers, and had children also. But, more importantly, he has contributed to British Literature and thus affected the out come of modern writing. He has influenced countless numbers of young and aspiring writers and will influence many more to come in future lifetimes. [...]
[...] I was inspired by Sir Thomas Wyatt's poem, Galley”, in which a metaphorical ship struggles with its love. Lines five to eight, the summer section was inspired by Shakespeare's “Shall I Compare Thee To A Summer's (Sonnet 18). This sonnet is written in rhyming iambic pentameter. I decided against using blank verse. One of the characteristics of Wyatt's sonnet Galley' is its total lack of regard for the woman. This allowed Wyatt to show his skill as a poet at court, and I have attempted to copy this style. [...]
