Two Tragedy Poets (...And a Caravan of Weird Figures) is the fifth studio album by Italian folk/power metal band Elvenking. It was released through AFM Records on November 14, 2008. The album is mostly acoustic; it includes acoustic versions of two older tracks, "The Winter Wake" and "The Wanderer", both from The Winter Wake. The Japanese edition also includes a remake of "Skywards", originally released on the album Heathenreel. Although Elvenking's website says otherwise, instead of "The Wanderer (acoustic version)" being a digipack bonus track, it's "My Little Moon".

The album was preceded by an online single, which included another acoustic version of the band's older song, "The Perpetual Knot".
