On the Death of the Late Earl of Rochester” Behn wrote elegies for Waller and Rochester, and both poems are well suited to their occasion; yet they are two distinctly different poems. “On the Death of the Late Earl of Rochester” (1685) is an appeal to the world to mourn the loss of a great and multifaceted personality: The muses must mourn the passing of a wit, youths must mourn the end of a “dear instructing rage” against foolishness, maidens the loss of a heaven-sent lover, the little gods of love the loss of a divine lover, and the unhappy world the passage of a great man.
