The expression swan song is a half-century older than the ballet Swan Lake, and the sentiment behind it is several millennia older

than that. One of the most pervasive of swan-legends is that a swan sings a beautiful song just before dying. Though it is a superstition

with no basis in fact, it was believed by Plato, Euripedes, Aristotle, Senaca, and Cicero. (Pliny, among others, disbelieved it, and the

truth of the superstition was debated at various times.) References to the legend are found in the works of many English writers,

including Chaucer, who mentions it twice, Caxton, Shakespeare (twice), and Spenser. Coleridge, ever the wit, commented notably that

Swans sing before they die; 'twere no bad thing/ Did certain persons die before they sing.

Despite the age and pervasiveness of the legend, the phrase swan song itself doesn't appear in English until 1831, when Carlyle

mentions it literally in his Sartor Resartus; he used it figuratively to mean 'the final work of a person's life' several years later.

Carlyle was apparently translating the earlier German word schwanengesang or schwanenlied, the existence of which demonstrates

the pervasiveness of the legend.
