    • POET: Chidiock Tichborne (2/23/2012 8:14:00 PM)

      I write this fully aware that no-one will ever read it, for who has ever heard of Chideock Tichborne? I first heard of him at school in the 1940s, and it is amazing that he wrote his Elegy on the eve of his execution in the Tower of London. I am not sure what the method of execution was in the 16th century, but he was disembowelled before he was dead so it must have been grisly, but knowing his fate he remained calm enough to compose this master-piece. It makes you wonder what else he could have written had he been allowed to live.
