On the Death of the Noble Prince King Edward the Fourth

On the Death of the Noble Prince King Edward the Fourth

Contrast John Skelton’s “On the Death of the Noble Prince King Edward the Fourth” to Surrey’s “Prisoned in Windsor.” Your analysis should focus on the differences between the two treatments of the theme of loss.
Consider in your analysis how the structure of each poem facilitates the particular thematic treatment. Please note that the speaker of Skelton’s poem is the dead King Edward IV, who addresses the living from the grave. The Latin last line of each stanza translates as “for/and behold, now I sleep in dust.” The first Latin words of the poem translate as “Take pity on me.” Lady Bess, referred to in the poem, is Edward’s wife, Elizabeth Woodville.
