Eight hundred limericks are gathered here, and most of them will reduce the average reader to helpless, roll-on-the-floor laughter. A few are the work of literary greats (Twain, Kipling, Auden), but most were written by that poet of the people, Anon. Nothing is sacred in this collection, and the ratio of decent verse to indecent is about what one might expect. Or, as one of the limericks says, "God's plan made a hopeful beginning,/ But Man spoilt his chances by sinning;/ We trust that the story/ Will end in great glory,/ But at present the other side's winning." For public and academic libraries. David Kirby, English Dept., Florida State Univ., Tallahassee
