WHAT CHEER by David -- Ed. McCord


Email this review


An anthology of American and British verse which concentrates solely on the light touch, in which there is endless entertainment, wit and amusement. Shakespeare, Herrick, Coleridge rub shoulders with Lardner, F.P.A., Don Marquis; books and food, and children compete with dialect, birds, drink, history, etc., as topics for the many airy pens. There are limericks, parodies, beautiful nonsense; there are songs as well as epitaphs; there are unforgettable old favorites and bright newcomers. Should be excellent merchandise for the Christmas trade as well as an all time acceptable gift suggestion. A very pleasant companion.
