The Harley Lyrics is the usual name for a collection of lyrics in Middle English, Anglo Norman and Latin found in Harley, a manuscript dated ca.1340.
In this collection the love poems, such as Alysoun and Blow, Northern Wind, take after the poems of the Provençal troubadours but are less formal, less abstract, and more lively.
The religious lyrics also are of high quality; but the most remarkable of the Harley Lyrics, The Man in the Moon, far from being about love or religion, imagines the man in the Moon as a simple peasant, sympathizes with his hard life, and offers him some useful advice on how to best the village hayward (a local officer in charge of a town’s common herd of cattle).

Jonathan Swift was an Anglo-Irish satirist, essayist, political pamphleteer, poet and cleric who became Dean of St Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin.
Swift is remembered for works such as A Tale of a Tub (1704), An Argument Against Abolishing Christianity (1712), Gulliver's Travels (1726), and A Modest Proposal (1729).
He is regarded by the Encyclopædia Britannica as the foremost prose satirist in the English language, and is less well known for his poetry. He originally published... all of his works under pseudonyms – such as Lemuel Gulliver, Isaac Bickerstaff, the Drapier – or anonymously. He was a master of two styles of satire, the Horatian and Juvenalian styles.
His deadpan, ironic writing style, particularly in A Modest Proposal, has led to such satire being subsequently termed "Swiftian".See More

The harpsichord was an important keyboard instrument in Europe from the 15th through the 18th centuries, and as revived in the 20th, is widely played today.
The earliest known reference to a harpsichord dates from 1397, when a jurist in Padua wrote that a certain Hermann Poll claimed to have invented an instrument called the 'clavicembalum'; and the earliest known representation of a harpsichord is a sculpture (on the above picture) in an altarpiece of 1425 from Minden in nor...th-west Germany.
Whoever invented the harpsichord did not have to proceed from scratch. The idea of controlling a musical instrument with a keyboard was already well worked out for the organ, an instrument that is far older than the harpsichord. Moreover, the psaltery was a widely used instrument of the Middle Ages. The 14th century was a time in which advances in clockwork and other machinery were being made; hence the time may have been ripe for the invention of the harpsichord.
The earliest complete harpsichords still preserved come from Italy, the oldest specimen being dated to 1521.

Poems in Prose is the collective title of six prose poems published by Oscar Wilde in The Fortnightly Review (July 1894). Derived from Wilde's many oral tales, these prose poems are the only six that were published by Wilde in his lifetime, and they include: "The Artist," "The Doer of Good", "The Disciple," "The Master," "The House of Judgment," and "The Teacher of Wisdom." A set of illustrations for the prose poems was completed by Wilde's friend and frequent illustrator, Ch...arles Ricketts, who never published the pen-and-ink drawings in his lifetime.
According to The New Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and Poetics, the defining traits of the prose poem are "unity even in brevity and poetic quality even without the line breaks of free verse: high patterning, rhythmic and figural repetition, sustained intensity, and compactness." Invented in the nineteenth century, the modern prose poem form is largely indebted to Charles Baudelaire's experiments in the genre, notably in his Petits poèmes en prose (1869), which created the subsequent interest in France exemplified by later writers such as Stéphane Mallarmé and Arthur Rimbaud. In English literature, Edgar Allan Poe and Charles Kingsley were progenitors of the form.See More

It's been a year of activism, protest and the search for the meaning of one word: "feminism."
Merriam-Webster declared "feminism" its word of the year for 2017. The online dictionary said it not only saw a sustained rise in searches for the word, but also registered spikes in lookups for the term around key events.
"Feminism" is defined as "the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes" and "organized activity on behalf of women's rights and interests."

The invention of the piano is credited to Bartolomeo Cristofori (1655–1731) of Padua, Italy, who was employed by Ferdinando de'Medici, Grand Prince of Tuscany, as the Keeper of the Instruments.
Cristofori was an expert harpsichord maker, and was well acquainted with the body of knowledge on stringed keyboard instruments.
He used his knowledge of harpsichord keyboard mechanisms and actions to help him to develop the first pianos. It is not known exactly when Cristofori first built a piano.
An inventory made by his employers, the Medici family, indicates the existence of a piano by the year 1700; another document of doubtful authenticity indicates a date of 1698.
The three Cristofori pianos that survive today date from the 1720s.
