ABSTRACT
The article offers poetry criticism of the poem "Garlande or Chapelet of Laurell," by John Skelton. It examines the significance of the poem's needlework scene in light of the actions of the poem's speaker, Skelton himself, who declares himself the poet laureate in the poem. The image of the laurel crown is examined for its significance as a symbol of Skelton's status and as a representation of the artistry of women in fifteenth- and sixteenth-century England.
