Today is the anniversary of the death of Sir Thomas Wyatt. He died at Sherborne in Dorset on 11th October 1542. He had been complaining of severe headaches since 1539. Wyatt was just thirty-nine years old at his death, but his poetry is still enjoyed the world over, although the majority of his work was not published in his lifetime.
