Note: The full text of the book "Lucasta"
by Richard Lovelace has been transcribed via Project Gutenburg. There are
two online versions; one is a printable text file that you can view or download
by clicking here.
The other is a readable online version which takes a LONG time to load; I
recommend you view the text version if possible because this other version may
crash your browser but here's the link if you're on high speed access or are
terribly brave. :-)
