Martin Drunk?

So,  in his satirical pamphlet Pierce Penilesse written in 1592, Thomas Nashe decided that there are eight kinds of drunk, mostly named for animals: ape, lion, swine, sheep, maudlin, martin, goat, and fox. I think it remains a fine list, but Martin drunk has always been a bit of a puzzle. Maybe Max can help.

”The first is Ape drunke, and he leapes, and sings, and hollowes, and daunceth for the heauens.”

”The second is Lion drunke, and he flings the pot about the house … breakes the glasse windowes with his dagger, and is apt to quarrell with any man that speaks to him.”

”The third is Swine drunke, heauy, lumpish, and sleepie, and cries for a little more drinke, and a fewe more cloathes.”

”The fourth is Sheepe drunke, wise in his own conceipt, when he cannot bring foorth a right word.”

”The fifth is Mawdlen drunke, when a fellowe will weepe for kindnes in the midst of his Ale, and kisse you, saying, By God, Captaine, I loue thee, goe thy wayes thou dost not thinke so often of me as I do of thee; I would (if it pleased God) I could not loue thee so well as I doo; and then he puts his finger in his eye, and cries.”

”The sixt is Martin drunke, when a man is drunke, and drinkes himselfe sober ere he stirre”

“The seventh is Goate drunke, when in his drunkennes, he hath no minde but on Lechery.”

“The eighth is Foxe drunke, when he is craftie drunke, as many of the Dutchmen bee, that will never bargaine but when they are drunke.”
