Description
This hugely entertaining anthology collects light skits, boisterous send-ups, and savage lampoons, ranging from the broadly comic to the subtle and erudite, from popular nursery rhymes to literary classics, with surprises throughout. Proust visits Chelsea, Yeats rewrites "Old King Cole," Harry Potter encounters Mick Jagger, and a modernized Sermon on the Mount rubs shoulders with an obituary of Sherlock Holmes. The collection provides a hilarious running commentary on literary history, with work by such accomplished parodists as Max Beerbohm, Robert Benchley, H.L. Mencken, and Evelyn Waugh, but it also looks beyond literature to include such things as advertising, political parodies, and even a scientific hoax.
