McGonagall: A Selection by William McGonagall

Only 1 left


Quick Overview

Contains highlights from McGonagall's work, arranged by theme, and with an introduction and notes to set the poet and poems in their historical context.


William McGonagall's poetry is undeniably dreadful, always sinking into new depths just as it seems to have hit rock bottom. It is this inimitable multi-faceted awfulness which makes his work so memorably funny. Much of the humor in his verse is created by the magnificent ignorance of meter and rhyme. This edition features some of his most famous works as well as specially selected pieces of poetry which not only epitomize McGonagall's style, but reflect the preoccupations and concerns of the Victorian age that influenced him.
