Description

Although well known to experts in English literature, Guilpin's Skialetheia has been available only in inadequate texts until now. This edition of the 1598 work presents an old-spelling critical text and provides and introduction and commentary on the text. These seventy epigrams and seven formal verse satires display the peculiarly negative, malicious tone associated with English literature of the time.

Originally published 1974.
