In this thrillingly entertaining book, Nicola Shulman interweaves the bloody events of Henry VIII's reign with the story of English love poetry and the life of its first master, Henry VIII's most glamorous and enigmatic subject: Sir Thomas Wyatt. Learned divines despised it, sober heads ignored it, but for Henry, the beau ideal of chivalry, poetry made things happen. It affected his wars, his diplomacy and his many marriages. It was at the root of his fatal attraction to Anne Boleyn a source of her power and a means of her destruction.

Thomas Wyatt was the finest poet at the court of Henry VIII, but this has not .

Thomas Wyatt was the finest poet at the court of Henry VIII, but this has not always earned him much respect. Wyatt later lived openly with his mistress, Bess Darrell, with whom he had an illegitimate child. His more notorious liaison with Anne Boleyn is controversial – a cat's cradle of claim and counterclaim – and is one of the key topics of Shulman's book. As Shulman shows, this was the breeding ground of the Wyatt lyric – a handwritten poem which "started life on a single folded piece of paper tucked purposefully into Wyatt's doublet, so it could be passed slyly to a friend as he was waiting in a crowded presence chamber, or left somewhere where a girl would find it.

Shulman's subtitle – "the many lives of Thomas Wyatt: courtier, poet, assassin .

Yet she chooses targets and themes with something of her subject's high-born hauteur. Shulman argues cogently that Wyatt betrayed the Boleyns, and was banged up so that he might rat at leisure on the clan. Hence the gnawing guilt. As for their liaison, we still don't know everything. Steered by the conventions of courtly love, Wyatt's lyrics – and the sophisticated "pastime" they fed – both sanctioned and controlled adulterous desires.

Learned divines despised it, sober heads ignored it, but for Henry, the beau ideal of chivalry, poetry made things happen. It affected his wars, his diplomacy and his many marriages. It was at the root of his fatal attraction to Anne Boleyn, the source of her power and it was the means of her destruction. In this witty, intriguing, accessible account, Nicola Shulman interweaves the bloody events of Henry's reign with the story of English love poetry and the life of its first master, Henry's most glamorous and enigmatic subject: Sir Thomas Wyatt. Courtier, spy, wit, diplomat, assassin, lover of Anne Boleyn, and favourite both of Henry and his sinister minister Thomas Cromwell, the brilliant Wyatt was admired and envied in equal measure. His love poetry began as an elite and risque entertainment for the group of ambitious men and women at the slippery top of the court. But when the axe began to fall among this group, and Henry's laws made his subjects fall silent in terror, Wyatt's poetic skills became a way to survive. He saw that a love poem was a place where secrets could hide.. . .

Shulman's writing is fine -- well-crafted sentences full of intelligent wit and insight. Her knowledge and appreciation for her subject and the period enliven her writing and perspective. She makes the intrigue at Henry's court come alive, and one can really see how the passing of poems serve as effective and engaging ways to communicate not only love and friendship and fun, but fear and concern as well. Graven with Diamonds is simply one of THE best books I've read in recent years. Very highly recommended.

This book complements "The Heart's Forest" by Susan Bridgen nicely along with the Penguin edition of Sir Thomas Wyatt's complete poems. It's a narrative, well written and held my interest, and allowed me to stop--read some passage from the two aforementioned, and then step back into the narrative. Having the TV series from BBC "The Tudors" at hand on Blu-ray made for a nice addition. I have been a fan ever since my introduction to his poetry in high school. If you are new to the study of Sir Thomas Wyatt or want some good backstory on Tudor times, this fills the bill.
