|Summary:||The editors of this legendary and hilarious anthology write: "It would seem at a hasty glance that to make an anthology of Bad Verse is on the whole a simple matter ... On the contrary ... There is bad Bad Verse and good Bad Verse." Here one finds the best of the worst of the greatest English poets, with an index ("Manure, adjudged a fit subject for the Muse, page 91") that is itself an inspired work of folly. Annotation. Just in time for National Poetry Month--the legendary and hilarious anthology containing the best of the worst poetry ever written by some of the world's most celebrated wordsmiths of the English language, including Dryden, Wordsworth, and Keats.
