Chapter: English Literature in the Early Seventeenth Century
So, Robert Herrick. Robert... Herrick...
Look, I'm gonna be straight with you guys: Robert Herrick's poetry is easily some of the most entertaining stuff I've read since this comic began. Sometimes it's terrible, sometimes it's brilliant, and sometimes it's absolutely filthy, but damn is it always fun to read. As you'll discover over the next several days, we're talking about a poet that just loved sex. Nay, he didn't just love sex, he lived for sex. Sex was the reason he got out of bed every morning.
But as I said, we'll see more of that later.
