Guilpin, Everard, fl. 1598. Carroll, D. Allen (Daniel Allen), b. 1938, editor.  
Skialetheia or A Shadowe of Truth, in Certaine Epigrams and Satyres.

Publisher: Chapel Hill, UNC Press, [c1974].
246 p., index, 22 cm.; Edited by D. Allen Carroll. ''Skialethaeia', entered in the Stationers' Register on 15 September 1598 (STC 12504), and published anonymously, contains seventy epigrams and seven formal verse satires-- a 'Satyre Preludium' and six numbered satires, without descriptive titles. Modeled after Martial and Juvenal, the major classical influences on Elizabethan satire, its tone is that of vigorous and outraged pseeimism, its method that of direct rebuke, and its objects of attack now 'gulls and fooles' in general, now very real persons, former friends, poets, people in high places... It was among the first to sound that peculiarly negative, melancholic, and malicious note that we associate with the late nineties, with the verse satirists...' Stock# 33,255.
