$9.30

Quick Overview

Linked to the radio programme "Bookworm", this is a collection of comic poems, by authors such as Spike Milligan, Ogden Nash, Jonathan Swift and John Betjeman.

Details

This wonderful anthology contains some of Britain's all-time favorite comic verse. From much-loved classics to lesser known and forgotten gems, Griff Rhys Jones takes us on a poetic tour of the witty, the nonensical and the plain laugh-out-loud funny. The selection brings together poets from every age and every walk of life, from Shakespeare to Victoria Wood and from Keats to Benjamin Zephaniah. There is Roald Dahl's cunning variation on 'Little Red Riding Hood', Spike Milligans's brilliantly ridiculous 'On the Ning Nang Nong' as well as several entries from the ever-elusive Anon. Remembered, half-remembered, cherished or written on the back of an envelope, here are some of the riches of Britain's favorite comic poems.
