This book, based on the Clarendon Lectures for 2016, is a study of the use of street songs in poetry and fiction in the long nineteenth century, ranging from the "stornelli" or Tuscan folk songs that appear in Robert Browning's "Fra Lippo Lippi" to "The Death of Nelson", the ballad sung by the one-legged sailor in James Joyce's "Ulysses".
