"The power, the strangeness, the volubility of his language, the audacity of his satire, and perfect originality of his manner, made Skelton one of the most extraordinary writers of any age or country."-Southey.
"Skelton is a curious, able, and remarkable writer, with strong sense, a vein of humour, and some imagination; he had a wonderful command of the English language, and one who was styled, in his turn, by as great a scholar as ever lived (Erasmus), the light and ornament of Britain.' He indulged very freely in his writings in censures on Mouks and Dominicans; and, moreover, had the hardihood to reflect, in no very mild terms, on the manners and life of Cardinal Wolsey. We cannot help considering Skelton as an ornament of his own time, and a benefactor to those who come after him."
