A Book of Nonsense


Edward Lear: A Book of Nonsense

Published anonymously in 1846, Lear's style of poetry and humour was so far ahead in it time it is hard to believe he came a hundred years before the world had heard of the Goons or Monty Python. His popularity endures as master of the limerick:

"There was an old man of Thermopylae
Who never did anything properly
But they said, if you choose
To boil eggs in your shoes
You will never remain in Thermopylae!"
