Chapter: English Literature During The Restoration And The Eighteenth Century
It probably goes without saying, but the Beggar's Opera does, in fact, have a lot of singing in it. This doesn't necessarily translate well into comics. Honestly, it doesn't really translate well into literature either. Both are for the same reason: we simply have no frame of reference for the music. As such, these strips are without lyrics. Which isn't to say that I may not try some before this is all over, but for now, I'm just avoiding the songs altogether.
Lit Brick is a comic started by Jodie Troutman in an effort to read the entire Norton Anthology of English Literature. Having eventually succeeded in that goal, it now features comics about all manner of random literature. For more of Jodie's work, visit longtalljodie.com!
