The Ballad of Nevyn

From Ardrana

The Ballad of Nevyn began as an epic poem, written and put to music by the bard Gilbert Sullivan, who traveled with Nevyn for many months. It is a comedy, and indeed, the chronicle of Nevyn's misadventures has grown to such length that it has been turned into a theatrical production. Gilbert no longer travels with Nevyn, but still adds to the work from time to time as word of his star's exploits trickles in to Mentoncha.
