The article examines the interpretation and meaning of the term Corve in the poem "A Shropshire Lad XXXVII," by A. E. Housman. According to the author, of the river-names used in the poem, the names Teme and Severn are distinguished as Celtic but the exception has been the Corve since it is located at the south of Wenlock Edge. It also discusses the link between the Corve and the term corbibus in the Juvenal and the idea that the term reflects the early history of Shropshire, England
