An updated and enlarged edition of an annotated collection originally published more than 20 years ago. Bloody Versicles serves as two books in one: an anthology of ribald, moralistic, sad, yet amusing and entertaining verse relating to specific crimes; and a small encyclopaedia of select criminals and their wrongdoings.
