Rate this:
The English writers in which the author has included (among many anonymous contributions) range from Skelton through Peacock and Lear to Stevie Smith; from Europe come Rabelais, Christian Morgenstern, Hans Arp and Robert Desnos. But, as Mr. Grigson points out, it is inappropriate to be too serious or too solemn about writing which aims to poke fun and give pleasure.
