The Nation s Favourite Comic Poems Book Description:

This wonderful anthology contains some of the nation's all time favourite comic verse. From much-loved classics such as Lewis Carroll's curious 'Jabberwocky' to lesser known and forgotten gems such as Gelett Burgess's 'The Purple Cow', Griff Rhys Jones takes us on a poetic tour of the witty, the nonsensical 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 Milligan's brilliantly ridiculous 'On the Ning Nang Nong' as well as several entries from the ever-elusive Anon, including one delightfully succint 'Peas'. Remebered, half-remembered, cherished or written on a tea towel, here are some of the nation's favourite comic poems.
