Music's Duel

Publication Date: July 15, 2011

Chapter: English Literature in the Early Seventeenth Century

The original poem is pretty much like the comic above, minus the random banjo player. It ends, however, when the Nightingale tries so hard to best the Lute Player that she literally just dies. Her corpse then plops down onto the lute itself, which I'm sure thrilled the Lute Player.

Author: Richard Crashaw • Year: 1646 • Info: Luminarium
