In this definitive anthology of Nashs poetry, some poems reveal a darker side of the poet, while others are full of fun. But all display the talent of the man whose verse entranced America--and a good part of the world--from the time of the Great Depression until his death in 1971.
There was only one living poet in my mother's repertory-Ogden Nash. When she swatted some fly in the kitchen, she would intone with solemnity: 'God in his wisdom made the fly / And then forgot to tell us why.' Nash was an inveterate experimentalist...endlessly innovative in his versification and diction. His rhymes were not merely amusing but often revelatory....[His] legacy remains a vital part of twentieth-century American poetry.--Dana Gioia
As winter sets in and holidays are on the horizon, the warmth and cleverness of this anthology of 548 verses makes it a perfect gift - even for those who may be having a rift.--Elizabeth Taylor "Chicago Tribune "
Even those of us inclined toward felines are captivated by Ogden Nash....Warmth and cleverness...makes it a perfect gift.--Elizabeth Taylor "Chicago Tribune "
This bountiful new collection of The Best of Ogden Nash gathers not only the choicest and most beloved poems from his huge output but presents several previously unpublished pieces discovered among his papers and family correspondence. Classic or 'new, ' Nash's humorous verses are a continual delight, as this volume will remind old admirers while regaling readers encountering him for the first time-and, given the current sad state of the world, not a moment too soon.--Joseph Parisi
He has become a social necessity . I have only one criterion for judging authors: how many are there without whom I could not possibly have lived until now? Ogden Nash is one of them.--Christopher Morley "Saturday Review Of Literature ""
Open this book to any page and find guaranteed laughter.--Dr. Clif Cleaveland "Chattanooga Times Free Press "
Clearly Ogden Nash is God's gift to the United States....Genuine comic talent is nearly priceless. Mr. Nash is our best literary comedian since Will Rogers. He has become, in a strictly Shakespearian sense, America's number one fool, though in any other sense he is nobody's fool.
He has become a social necessity.... I have only one criterion for judging authors: how many are there without whom I could not possibly have lived until now? Ogden Nash is one of them.--Christopher Morley "Saturday Review Of Literature "
I have reviewed on Amazon and/or own the following:
Crandell, George W. (1990). Ogden Nash: A Descriptive Bibliography.
Parker, Douglas M. (2005). The Life and Work of American's Laureate of Light Verse.
Smith, Linell Nash (1990). Loving Letters from Ogden Nash: A Family Album
Smith, Linell Nash (2007) The Best of Ogden Nash
Stuart, David (2000). The Life of Rhymes of Ogden Nash.
I can find ONLY one poem missing from it - one of my favorites - I BURN MONEY. The last lines reads: "But I think what I would really do if I had a million would be to buy a million dollars' worth of books written by me and then besides having a lot of good books I could sit back and live on the royalties for the rest of my life."
How could Smith forget to include such a famous line?
I quote it all the time!
Nevertheless, I've read poems within the volume that I have not seen elsewhere. That make this work a great value to me!
