Sir Edward Coke died at his home in Stoke Poges in 1634. That year an elegy was written for him by Robert Codrington, honouring his achievements as a lawyer:
'The Nymphes that haunt the neighbouring woods and hilles, That guard the valleyes, and that guide the Rilles, Resound his losse and honourd name and show The boundles Rage of their impatient woe In so distracting and so sadde a cry, As if with him the Northern World did dye.'
This article explores his work.
