Good Comedies are such rare productions, that notwithstanding the wealth of our literature in the Comic element, it would not occupy us long to run over the English list. If they are brought to the test I shall propose, very reputable Comedies will be found unworthy of their station, like the ladies of Arthur’s Court when they were reduced to the ordeal of the mantle. There are plain reasons why the Comic poet is not a frequent apparition; and why the great Comic poet remains without a fellow. A society of cultivated men and women is required, wherein ideas are current and the perceptions quick, that he may be supplied with matter and an audience.

This is a humor book. After twelve months of agreeable toil, made easy by unprecedented success, the period has at length arrived when your high mightinesses will be able to indulge your voracious appetites by feeding and fattening on the work of death. Already does my prophetic spirit picture to itself the black cloud of cormorants, swelling and puffing in the fulness of their editorial pride, at the huge eccentric volume which has thus thrust itself into extensive circulation without the usual cringings and cravings to the pick fault tribe. Let me have good proof of your greediness to devour my labours, and I will dish up such a meal for you in my next volume, as shall go nigh to produce extermination by surfeit. One favour, alone, I crave—give me abuse enough; let no squeamish pretences of respect for my bookseller, or disguised qualms of apprehension for your own sacred persons, deter the natural inclination of your hearts. The slightest deviation from your usual course to independent writers—or one step towards commendation from your gang, might induce the public to believe I had abandoned my character, and become one of your honourable fraternity-the very suspicion of which would (to me) produce irretrievable ruin.

It is a melody book. Hillarious, fantastic poems that I enjoyed reading to my two sons when they were little. Now I'd like to read them for anyone's children to enjoy listening to.

How humble the home, and yet what a lesson it should teach the boys of America! Here, amid the barren and inhospitable waste of rocks and cold, the last place in the world that a great man would naturally select to be born in, began the life of one who, by his own unaided effort, in after years rose to the proud height of postmaster at Laramie City, and with an estimate of the future that seemed almost prophetic, resigned before he could be characterized as an offensive partisan.

It is a poetry book. A nonsense song is a type of song written in fun using nonsense syllables at least in the chorus. Such a song generally has a simple melody and a quick (or fairly quick) tempo. The roots of this song type can be traced as far back as 'Shoo, Fly, Don't Bother Me' and 'Jimmy Crack Corn' to the 1890s 'Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-ay'. This last was a kind of can-can with an obvious accent on the 'boom'. Mostly it was a way of letting off steam.

It is a melody book. Edward Lear, the artist, Author of "Journals of a Landscape Painter" in various out-of-the-way countries, and of the delightful "Books of Nonsense", which have amused successive generations of children, died on Sunday, January 29, 1888, at San Remo, Italy, where he had lived for twenty years. Few names could evoke a wider expression of passing regret at their appearance in the obituary column; for until his health began to fail he was known to an immense and almost a cosmopolitan circle of acquaintance, and popular wherever he was known. Fewer still could call up in the minds of intimate friends a deeper and more enduring feeling of sorrow for personal loss, mingled with the pleasantest of memories; for it was impossible to know him thoroughly and not to love him. London, Rome, the Mediterranean countries generally, Ceylon and India, are still all dotted with survivors among his generation who will mourn for him affectionately, although his latter years were spent in comparatively close retirement. He was a man of striking nobility of nature, fearless, independent, energetic, given to forming for himself strong opinions, often hastily, sometimes bitterly; not always strong or sound in judgment, but always seeking after truth in every matter, and following it as he understood it in scorn of consequence; utterly unselfish, devoted to his friends, generous even to extravagance towards any one who had ever been connected with his fortunes or his travels; playful, light-hearted, witty, and humorous, but not without those occasional fits of black depression and nervous irritability to which such temperaments are liable.

This is a melody book. Lear's second collection of limericks appeared in 1872 in More Nonsense Pictures, Rhymes Botany &c., published by Robert Bush. This book, as the title suggests, contained not only limericks, but also botanies and a collection of twenty-six other 'nonsense rhymes and pictures' describing as many characters (mainly animals) so as to form an alphabet. Though the name given these is the same he used for the limericks, they are not really 'rhymes', but rather short prose descriptions.

The book is the sixty-fourth volume of the contains those papers from the Tatler which were especially associated with the imagined character of Isaac Bickerstaff who was the central figure in that series; and in the twenty-ninth volume there is a similar collection of papers relating to the Spectator Club and Sir Roger de Coverley who was the central figure in Steele and Addison’s Spectator. Those volumes contained no doubt some of the best essays of addison and Steele. But in the Tatler and Spectator are full armories of the wit and wisdom of these two writers who summoned into life the army of the essayists and led it on to kindly war against the forces of Ill-temper and Ignorance. Envy Hatred Malice and all their first cousins of the family of Charitableness are captains under those two commanders-in-chief and we can little afford to dismiss from the field two of the stoutest combatants against them. In this volume it is only Addison who speaks and in another volume presently to follow there will be the voice of Steele. The two friends differed in temperament and in many of the outward signs of character but these two little books will very distinctly show how wholly they agreed as to essentials. For Addison Literature had a charm of its own he delighted in distinguishing the finer graces of good style and he drew from the truths of life the principles of taste in writing.
