Description
This treasury of humorous poems brings together a sparkling constellation of witty poets-from Lord Rochester to Lewis Carroll, from Edward Lear to Ogden Nash, from Dorothy Parker to W. H. Auden-and embraces a wide range of forms, including limericks, clerihews, ballads, sonnets, and nonsense verse. Comic Poems is studded with unforgettable classics, along with lesser-known comic gems from across the ages, from ancient Rome to modern America. Here is the immortal "How Pleasant to Know Mr. Lear" beside Noël Coward's "Mad Dogs and Englishmen"; the incomparable "Jabberwocky" next to the famous "There was a young lady of Riga." From Cole Porter and John Updike on love and marriage to Stevie Smith and Dorothy Parker on mortality to the ever-talented Anonymous on almost anything, the lighthearted poetry collected here ranges from the most delightful nonsense to the most sophisticated wit.
