The complete poems of John Skelton, laureate by John Skelton( Book )

John Skelton can be something of a discovery for the reader of poetry. The greatest things about him are those qualities of observation and quiet humour that bespeak a mind peculiarly English in its outlook. "The Renaissance has obscured centuries of English culture, and to be appreciated Skelton must be approached not through Spenser, Shakespeare and Donne, but through Chaucer, Gower and Lydgate. He will be seen for what he is -- the last and peculiarly brilliant representative of a great tradition, a man standing at a decisive turning point of English culture." [Translator]
