This chapter looks closely at the trio of anti-curial satires written by Wyatt, possibly during his exile at Allington in 1536: Mine Own John Poins, My Mother’s Maids, and A Spending Hand, demonstrating how they transform classical and continental humanist material into reflections on Henry VIII’s domestic English tyranny.
