As ambassador to Emperor Charles V, he enjoyed favour, but his embassy turned to nightmare when the Pope called for a crusade against the English King and sent the Inquisition against Wyatt.

Wyatt was extremely sensitive to the negotiations, both linguistic and diplomatic, that occur in the act of translation.
Following the sources - often new discoveries, from many archives - as far as they lead, Susan Brigden seeks Wyatt in his 'diverseness', and explores his seeming confessions of love and faith and politics. The Handbook traces the history of Western rhetoric from ancient Greece and Rome to the present and surveys the role of rhetoric in more than thirty academic disciplines and fields of social practice.

These habits of rewriting and verbal performance often serve to sustain an intimate dialogue between writers and readers in this literary culture.

Repeatedly, his writings invite readers to 'turn' or perform the word-to draw out something that lies inert within it.
