Jack Campin Twisted roots of John Barleycorn... (9) RE: Twisted roots of John Barleycorn... 07 Oct 20

A few years ago I came across a prose version of the same story from the Renaissance (in an anthology of letters about art) but about murdering grapes to make wine. I wonder if that was part of a parallel song tradition?

For that matter the same theme could work for any of the plants that people ferment into alcohol around the world.
