Scholars believe that Queen Elizabeth I’s “On Monsieur’s Departure” (p. 761) was composed after one of her marriage negotiations ended without reaching an agreement. (The subject of the negotiations was the French noble François Hercule, duke of Alençon and later of Anjou, who was referred to at the English court as “Monsieur.”) Explore how this poem draws on and departs from the imagery and language characteristic of Petrarchan sonnets, such as Thomas Wyatt’s “I find no peace” (p. 625). What connections between content and poetic form can you observe in each? You might also want to compare the poetic techniques in this poem with “The Doubt of Future Foes” (p. 761)? In what ways does “On Monsieur’s Departure” similarly navigate a space between private and political?
