    Abstract:
    Poor Poet’s Complaint: The Place and Role of the Moneybag in English Literature The article presents four British poems from four different literary periods sharing a common theme: complaint about the poet’s poverty. Each of the poems – “Deor”, “Complaint of Chaucer to His Purse”, Barnfield’s “The Complaint of Poetrie, for the Death of Liberalitie” (his “The Encomion of Lady Pecunia: Or The Praise of Money” is also mentioned) and Burns’ „Lines Written on a Banknote” – is presented within the context of the contemporary economic situations of English poets in general, and the specific biographical circumstances in which they were written. In a broader sense the article presents in a brief and light way the economic reality of literary creativity in Great Britain from the early Middle Ages to our times
