In 2011, Middle English scholar Elaine Treharne found a (slightly racy) Latin poem, written by a sixteent-century Englishwoman for her tutor, pasted into an early modern printing of Chaucer. You can read the whole story -- who the Englishwoman and her tutor were, why it's important that the poem is in Latin, and a translation of the poem itself -- at the Early Modern England website.

This is a legacy post from my previous website.
