Synopsis

While no collection of limericks can claim to be 'complete', The Wordsworth Book of Limericks contains an astonishing collection of over 1,800 verses - all of them comical, and a great number so far from cleanliness as to verge on the obscene. This is not a book for the prurient, but it will give enormous pleasure to all who relish the unique art-form of the limerick. Whether this book is kept by the bed or by the loo, perhaps buyers should ask themselves the question that Mervyn Griffith-Jones QC put to the Lady Chatterley jury in 1960: 'Is this a book you would even wish your wife or your servants to read?'
