South Yorkshire, England: A dragon terrorizes the territory northwest of Sheffield. Who dares take him on? The local knight, More of More-Hall!

The anonymous poem, “The Dragon of Wantley,” from about 1685, has been variously interpreted as a parody of a scene from Edmund Spenser’s epic poem The Faerie Queene, and an allegory of seventeenth-century Yorkshire politics. We at Drowned Town Press just think it’s silly.

Text by Anonymous, first published circa 1685. Art © 2024 E. J. Barnes.
