English Although only one play by Skelton survives, he wrote others, along with pageant disguising and a devotional poem that he 'devised to be displayed'. It is possible too that Skelton performed some of his poems in court ceremonies or festivals, and he was certainly involved in producing court performances of various kinds. This chapter explores the ways in which Skelton deploys voices and creates audiences in his poems, and insists on and facilitates his poems' performance.
