Humour in Verse
Originally published in 1937, this anthology of humorous poems was created for the younger reader as a supplement to the more serious material found in numerous school anthologies. The guiding principle of the text is that 'Wit, as much as the passions, claims its place in poetry, and, in English particularly, enjoys the honour of a great tradition.' This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in comic verse and English poetry.
