Chapter: English Literature During The Restoration And The Eighteenth Century
There's almost no punchline here. Thomas Gray seriously just wrote a poem for a friend called "Ode on the Death of a Favorite Cat: Drowned in a Tub of Goldfishes." I really could've just typed that into a single word balloon and called it a day. The funniest thing here is that I went from a strip about a very serious topic like slavery in the 1700s to a strip about a rich dilettante's dead cat. That's pretty much Lit Brick in a nutshell.
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!
