John Skelton (c. 1463-1529) was an English poet and tutor to King Henry VIII of England. It is said that several of Skelton's works were inspired by women who were to become mothers to two of Henry VIII's six wives. One of them was Elizabeth Boleyn, the mother of Anne Boleyn, who was said to be so beautiful that Skelton compared her to Cressida. Skelton also wrote three plays, only one of which survived, representing one of the best examples of the morality play by dealing with the same topic as his satirical poems - the evils of ambition.

"IN CLARISSIMI SCHELTONIS LOUANIENSIS POETÆ LAUDES EPIGRAMMA.

Quum terra omnifero lætissima risit amictu, Plena novo fotu quælibet arbor erat; Vertice purpurei vultus incepit honores Extensis valvis pandere pulchra rosa; Et segetum tenero sub cortice grana tumescunt, Flavescens curvat pendula spica caput. Vix Cancri tropicos æstus lustravit anhelans Pythius, et Nemeæ vertit ad ora feræ, Vesper solis equos oriens dum clausit Olympo, Agmina stellarum surgere cuncta jubet: Hic primo aspiceres ut Cynthia vecta sereno Extulerat surgens cornua clara polo; Inde Hydram cernas, stravit quam clava trinodis Alcidæ, nitidis emicuisse comis; Tum[40] Procyon subiit, præpes Lepus, hinc Jovis ales, Arctos, et Engonasus, sidus et Eridani; Ignivomis retinet radiis quæ stellifer orbis (Quid multis remorer?) sidera cuncta micant. Nutat Atlanteum convexum pondus, ocellis Dum lustro hæc ægris, vergit et oceano. Tum furtim alma quies repens mihi membra soporat, Curaque Lethæo flumine mersa jacet: O mihi quam placidis Icelos tulit aurea somnis Somnia, musiphilis non caritura fide! Nuncia percelebris Polyhymnia blanda salutans Me Clarii ut visam numina sacra citat. Ut sequar hanc lætus, mihi visus amona vireta Et nemorum umbrosos præteriisse sinus: Scilicet hæc montes monstraverat inter eundum Et fontes Musæ quos coluere sacros; Castalios latices, Aganippidos atque Medusei Vidimus alipedis flumina rupta pede; Antra hinc Libethri monstrat Pimpleidos undas, Post vada Cephisi, Phocidos atque lacus; Nubifer assurgit mons Pierus atque Cithæron, Gryneumque nemus dehinc Heliconque sacer; Inde et Parnasi bifidi secreta subimus, Tota ubi Mnemosynes sancta propago manet. Turba pudica novem dulce hic cecinere sororum; Delius in medio plectra chelynque sonat: Aurifluis laudat modulis monumenta suorum Vatum, quos dignos censet honore poli: De quo certarunt Salamin, Cumæ, vel Athenæ, Smyrna, Chios, Colophon, primus Homerus erat; Laudat et Orpheum, domuit qui voce leones, Eurydicen Stygiis qui rapuitque rogis; Antiquum meminit Musæum Eumolpide natum, Te nec Aristophanes Euripidesque tacet; Vel canit illustrem genuit quem Teia tellus, Quemque fovit dulci Coa camena sinu; Deinde cothurnatum celebrem dat laude Sophoclem, Et quam Lesbides pavit amore Phaon; Æschylus, Amphion, Thespis nec honore carebant, Pindarus, Alcæus, quem tuleratque Paros; Sunt alii plures genuit quos terra Pelasga, Daphnæum cecinit quos meruisse decus: Tersa Latinorum dehinc multa poemata texit, Laude nec Argivis inferiora probat; Insignem tollit ter vatem, cui dedit Andes Cunas urbs, clarum Parthenopæa taphum; Blanda Corinna, tui Ponto religatus amore, Sulmoni natus Naso secundus erat; Inde nitore fluens lyricus genere Appulus ille Qui Latiis primus mordica metra tulit; Statius Æacidem sequitur Thebaida pingens, Emathio hinc scribens prælia gesta solo; Cui Verona parens hinc mollis scriptor amorum, Tu nec in obscuro, culte Tibulle, lates; Haud reticendus erat cui patria Bilbilis, atque Persius hinc mordax crimina spurca notans; Eximius pollet vel Seneca luce tragodus, Comicus et Latii bellica præda ducis; Laudat et hinc alios quos sæcula prisca fovebant; Hos omnes longum jam meminisse foret. Tum[41] Smintheus, paulo spirans, ait, ecce, sorores, Quæ clausa oceano terra Britanna nitet! Oxoniam claram Pataræa ut regna videtis, Aut Tenedos, Delos, qua mea fama viret: Nonne fluunt istic nitidæ ut Permessidos undæ, Istic et Aoniæ sunt juga visa mihi? Alma fovet vates nobis hæc terra ministros, Inter quos Schelton jure canendus adest: Numina nostra colit; canit hic vel carmina cedro Digna, Palatinis et socianda sacris; Grande decus nobis addunt sua scripta, linenda Auratis, digna ut posteritate, notis; Laudiflua excurrit serie sua culta poesis, Certatim palmam lectaque verba petunt; Ora lepore fluunt, sicuti dives fagus auro, Aut pressa Hyblæis dulcia mella favis; Rhetoricus sermo riguo fecundior horto, Pulchrior est multo puniceisque rosis, Unda limpidior, Parioque politior albo, Splendidior vitro, candidiorque nive, Mitior Alcinois pomis, fragrantior ipso Thureque Pantheo, gratior et violis; Vincit te, suavi Demosthene, vincit Ulyxim Eloquio, atque senem quem tulit ipse Pylos; Ad fera bella trahat verbis, nequiit quod Atrides Aut Brisis, rigidum te licet, Æacides; Tantum ejus verbis tribuit Suadela Venusque Et Charites, animos quolibet ille ut agat, Vel Lacedæmonios quo Tyrtæus pede claudo Pieriis vincens martia tela modis, Magnus Alexander quo belliger actus ab illa Mæonii vatis grandisonante tuba; Gratia tanta suis virtusque est diva camenis, Ut revocet manes ex Acheronte citos; Leniat hic plectro vel pectora sæva leonum, Hic strepitu condat monia vasta lyræ; Omnimodos animi possit depellere morbos, Vel Niobes luctus Heliadumque truces; Reprimat his rabidi Saulis sedetque furores, Inter delphinas alter Arion erit; Ire Cupidineos quovis hic cogat amores, Atque diu assuetos hic abolere queat; Auspice me tripodas sentit, me inflante calores Concipit æthereos, mystica diva canit; Stellarum cursus, naturam vasti et Olympi, Aeris et vires hic aperire potest, Vel quid cunctiparens gremio tellus fovet almo, Gurgite quid teneat velivolumque mare; Monstratur digito phonice ut rarior uno, Ecce virum de quo splendida fama volat! Ergo decus nostrum quo fulget honorque, sorores, Heroas laudes accumulate viro; Laudes accumulent Satyri, juga densa Lycæi, Pindi, vel Rhodopes, Mænala quique colunt; Ingeminent plausus Dryades facilesque Napææ, Oreadum celebris turba et Hamadryadum; Blandisonum vatem, vos Oceanitidesque atque Naiades, innumeris tollite præconiis; Æterno vireat quo vos celebravit honore, Illius ac astris fama perennis eat: Nunc maduere satis vestro, nunc prata liquore Flumina, Pierides, sistite, Phobus ait. Sat cecinisse tuum sit, mi Schelton, tibi laudi Hæc Whitintonum: culte poeta, vale.

Ex capitalibus hexametrorum litteris solerter compositis emergit hoc distichon;

Quæ Whitintonus canit ad laudes tibi, Schelton, Anglorum vatum gloria, sume libens."[42]

Another laudatory notice of Skelton by a contemporary writer will not here be out of place;

"To all auncient poetes, litell boke, submytte the, Whilom flouryng in eloquence facundious, And to all other whiche present nowe be; Fyrst to maister Chaucer and Ludgate sentencious, Also to preignaunt Barkley nowe beying religious, To inuentiue Skelton and poet laureate; Praye them all of pardon both erly and late."[43]

Skelton frequently styles himself "orator regius;"[44] but the nature of the office from which he derived the title is not, I believe, understood. The lines in which, as we have just seen, Whittington so lavishly praises his "rhetoricus sermo," allude most probably to his performances in the capacity of royal orator.

In 1498 Skelton took holy orders. The days on which, during that year, he was ordained successively subdeacon, deacon, and priest, are ascertained by the following entries:

"[In ecclesia conuentuali domus siue hospitalis sancti Thome martiris de Acon ciuitatis London. per Thomam Rothlucensem episcopum vltimo die mensis Marcii]

M. Johannes Skelton London, dioc. ad titulum Mon. beate Marie de Graciis iuxta Turrim London."

"[In cathedra sancti Pauli London. apud summum altare eiusdem per Thomam permissione diuina London, episcopum in sabbato sancto viz. xiiii die mensis Aprilis]

Johannes Skelton poete [sic] laureatus Lond. dioc. ad titulum Mon. de Graciis juxta turrim London."

"[In ecclesia conuentuali hospitalis beate Marie de Elsyng per Thomam Rothlucensem episcopum ix die mensis Iunii]

M. Johannes Skelton poeta lureatus [sic] London. dioc. ad titulum Mon. de Graciis iuxta turrim London."[45]

When Arthur, the eldest son of Henry the Seventh, was created Prince of Wales and Earl of Chester, in 1489,[46] Skelton celebrated the event in a composition (probably poetical) called Prince Arturis Creacyoun,[47] of which the title alone remains; and when Prince...
