  4. 4. Who?  "Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey was one of the most flamboyant and controversial characters of Henry VIIIs reign. A pioneering poet, whose verse had a profound impact on Shakespeare, Surrey was nevertheless branded by one contemporary as the most foolish proud boy that is in England. He was the heir of Englands premier nobleman, first cousin to two of Henry VIIIs wives - Anne Boleyn and Katherine Howard - and best friend and brother-in-law to the Kings illegitimate son, Henry Fitzroy. Celebrated for his chivalrous deeds both on and off the battlefield, Surrey became, at only twenty-eight, the Kings Lieutenant General in France. But his confident exterior masked insecurity and loneliness. A man of intriguing contradictions, Surrey was both law enforcer and law breaker, political conservative and religious reformer and his life, replete with drunken escapades, battlefield heroics, conspiracy and courtroom drama, sheds new light on the opulence and artifice of a dazzling, but deadly, age." ~ editorial product description of Jessie Childs book "Henry VIIIs Last Victim: The Life and Times of Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey
  5. 5. Biography  Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey, (born 1517, Hunsdon, Hertfordshire, Eng.—died Jan. 13, 1547, London), Poet who, with Sir Thomas Wyatt (1503–42), introduced into England the styles and metres of the Italian humanist poets and so laid the foundation of a great age of English poetry. The eldest son of Lord Thomas Howard, Henry took the courtesy title of Earl of Surrey in 1524 when his father succeeded as 3rd Duke of Norfolk. Closely involved in the history of Henry VIII Most of Surrey’s poetry was probably written during his confinement at Windsor; it was nearly all first published in the Renaissance years after his death. He acknowledged Wyatt as a master and followed him in adapting Italian forms to English verse. He translated a number of Petrarch’s sonnets already translated by Wyatt. Surrey was the first to develop the sonnet form used by William Shakespeare.
  6. 6. Petrarch, Rime 140 Amor, che nel penser mio vive et regnae ’l suo seggio maggior nel mio cor tene,talor armato ne la fronte vene;ivi si loca et ivi pon sua insegna.Quella ch’amare e sofferir ne ’nsegna, A poem of 14 lines,e vol che’l gran desio, l’accesa spene, divided into an octetragion, vergogna, e reverenza affrene, and a sestet, writtendi nostro ardir fra se stessa si sdegna. in iambic pentameter,Onde Amor paventoso fugge al core, rhyming abbaabbbalasciando ogni sua impresa, et piange et trema; cdecdeivi s’asconde et non appar piu fore.Che poss’io far, temendo il mio signore,se non star seco infin a l’ora estrema?che bel fin fa chi ben amando more
  7. 7. Love, that doth reign and live within my thought  Love, that doth reign and live within my thought, And built his seat within my captive breast, Clad in the arms wherein with me he fought, Oft in my face he doth his banner rest. But she that taught me love and suffer pain, My doubtful hope and eke my hot desire With shamefast look to shadow and refrain, Her smiling grace converteth straight to ire. And coward Love, then, to the heart apace Taketh his flight, where he doth lurk and plain, His purpose lost, and dare not show his face. For my lords guilt thus faultless bide I pain, Yet from my lord shall not my foot remove: Sweet is the death that taketh end by love.
