Among the most popular of the many well-loved works of Gilbert and Sullivan, H. M. S. Pinafore; or, The Lass that Loved a Sailor was written to be sung and acted on the stage; nevertheless, its sparkling lyrics and dialog shine no less brightly from the printed page. Pinafore satirizes the unlikely plot twists of grand opera and Victorian social rectitude with the tale of Josephine, the captain's daughter, and Ralph, the lowly sailor who seeks her hand. A comic gem, full of saucy banter and inventive rhymes.
