Okiemockbird Folklore: Piper/Ratcatcher of Hameln (5) RE: BS: Piper/Ratcatcher of Hameln 20 Dec 99

MMario, thanks for those links.

Another point to ponder: Illustrations of Browning's poem show the piper playing a two-handed pipe, but I detect hints that Browining imagined the piper to be playing a one-handed pipe: the reference to the piper's "one hand" when he first appears, and to "pipe or tabor" at the end of the poem.
